Detroit Tuned has engineered and fully track-tested this brake kit to bring world-class braking performance to your MINI. We use now use a Willwood race calipers for better pad options. You can pick the bright gloss red or stealth gloss black calipers to fit they look your going for. Both calipers come in a high gloss powdercoated finish that lasts a very long time and will look goof for years with proper cleaning..

We have two kits to fit your wheel choices. The 16" kit will fit behind most 16" wheels, and it uses a two piece 11.6"x1.2" rotor that weighs in at 13 lbs each. The 17" kit uses a two piece 12.8"x1.2" rotor and will fit behind most 17" wheels. You may have to use low profile wheel weights to clear calipers.

Each kit comes with:

  • Two Willwood 9701 Calipers in Red or Black
  • Two lightweight two piece rotors
  • Stainless Front Brake Lines w/ OEM bushings for a perfect fit
  • Laser cut brackets and heavy-duty hardware
  • All parts plated for longevity and great looks
  • G-Loc GS-1 high-performance, low dust street pad (race pads sold separately and we have lots of temperature options, give us a call)
  • Optional cryogenically treated rotors for an extra $55.00 (recommended for heavily tracked cars!)

Full how-to instructions (below) with great photos makes this an easy kit to install in about 2-3 hours for the do-it yourself person. This kit is always in stock, ready to ship!

Note: This kit will not fit most stock wheels without spacers. IE: They will not fit S-Lights without 12 mm spacers and lug bolts or studs. The 17" kit will fit the 17" R90 and R99 wheels without any spacers. The 17" kit will also work with the 18" GP wheels with a 5mm spacer. It will, however, fit most aftermarket wheels without spacers or any needed hardware.

Note: When installing a BBK, please don't think you can install it on Friday and race on Saturday. ALL Brakes must have a break-in period. You need to bed the pads in and put minimum 500 miles of stop-and-go traffic on the kit before racing it. It has to go thru heat cycles to be ready for the extreme abuse that comes from the track. Plan ahead and your kit will last you a long time as well as hold up under track days.

    Amazing Product

    I worked with DT to get the right pads and parts for this kit. WOW!! The performance difference is absolutely amazing. I highly encourage this if actually on the track and/or like to go fast on the street.

    Serious stopping power

    Posted by Peter on 1st Sep 2021

    I've put this kit through it's paces for the past few months, including track days and dozens of runs on mountain roads. I've paired this kit with g-loc R10 pads. After initial bed-in and bleeding this kit a few times times, the pedal feel isn't much different from stock. But the braking force is astonishing. I can lock up semi-slick tires with ease, all the way from dead cold to glowing hot. The heat capacity is amazing as well. I cannot get even the slightest hint of fading on the street, and they last many flying laps around Laguna Seca before fading.
    The calipers use the fairly common Wilwood 7112 plate pad, so you have a lot of options to chose there.
    I do suggest reading through the instructions before you get the kit. They're fairly detailed but lack some crucial information, such as the fact you'll want Permatex 54540 to seal one of the pipe fittings on the kit. There's a fair bit that goes into the install of the kit, so plan a weekend to do it.
    Overall. I'm blown away. The result is absolutely worth the high cost of admission. I don't know if I could handle going back to stock.
