It's probably in the 5-6K range. But well worth it IMHO; these brakes are not what I would expect at this price point.

Better brakes should have been OEM from the start.

Thought it was closer to $6k for the Alcon plus tie rods(if needed) another $600-$800....for the cost the R1 BBK is a better option at over a thousand dollars less.

My first post.... I just installed this kit and its night/day improvement. I can imagine once the pads/rotors bed they will be even better.

Added the 3" Fox shock upgrade at the same time....and a couple other improvements.

I looked into the R1's previously, and from what I was able to tell they require 18 inch wheels, and preferably 19's.

I have them on my car with 37's and love it. Huge difference compared to stock. Makes you feel a lot more confident and well worth it!

Here is a video on youtube someone put up showing the stopping distances compared to stock:
