Brake upgrade....any options yet, or has anyone made any changes?

Hello! We're trading our '07 WK on Monday for a 2011 WK2 Limited V6.... I had upgraded to ceramic pads and StopTech rotors and loved the results; has anyone done similar w/a WK2 yet or have there been any kits put out yet?

The V6 has the smallest brakes on the WK2 so the single best upgrade would be to the HD brakes from the V8. Since it's so new I'm not aware of any aftermarket yet.

No idea aside from larger calipers and rotors on the front. Perhaps a different master cylinder but I havent poured through the parts book. All I know for sure is they are larger because only the V6 can use 17" wheels.

HD brakes are rotors, bracket, pins, calipers. Master cylinder is the same.

I started a thread about this wanting to upgrade to the Brembo SRT Breaks but it seems it is too new for anything like this.
