In performance driving you can spend as much time with your foot on the brake as you do on the gas (at least in a Solo event). While the stock MINI brakes are impressive for most street applications it does not take much performance driving before you note the need for better brakes.

Big Brake Kits give your MINI that Supercar look and feel, and exceed stock performance in two areas. First, larger rotors increase heat capacity. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance.

Advantages of StopTech over other brake upgrades:

* Shorter Stopping Distances
* Better Brake Modulation
* Firmer Brake Pedal
* Less Brake Fade

Feature Benefit Summary:

* Balanced Brake Upgrades™ with optimum brake bias offer the shortest stopping distance with the best pedal feel
* Our patented AeroRotors® with the best airflow available result in better cooling, less fade and longer rotor and pad life
* The stiffest aftermarket calipers with patented bridge result in better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper
* Track testing of new applications ensures optimum performance

The Stoptech Front Big Brake kit includes 12.9" slotted rotors with four piston calipers, stainless steel brake lines, and high performance street pads for both the MINI Cooper or MINI Cooper S. Minimum 17 inch aftermarket wheels with adequate caliper clearance required - use template below to check clearance with your wheels.

Available in Slotted or Drilled rotors with Black or Red Calipers - select from the Image List below or to the right.

For Track Use: black is best, red is acceptable. Other caliper colors may experience significant color change due to the extreme temperatures.

See NMB2015 for matching rear rotors.

Fits 2007+ R56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtops, and 2008+ R55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S CLUBMAN.

Check Caliper Clearance Template.
