Default Best BBK for Aesthetics

I am planning to put a BBK on my G. I honestly don't care about performance and more about the aesthetics of the kit. What are my options? What is the general consensus about which brand is good or bad? I've done a little bit of research and so far I have found the following.

1. PB Brakes (https://pbbrakes.com)

2. R1 Concept (https://www.r1concepts.com/)

3. KSport (https://ksportusa.com)

4. Rotora (http://www.rotora.com/)

I think Rotora is my favourite size wise it covers a lot more of the front rotor. My only issue with Rotora is that they don't sell their products directly. I drive my vehicle a lot and I don't want any issues when I'm looking for pad and rotor replacements. Does anybody have any experience with R1 or PB Brakes? How are they reliability wise? This car will only be street driven. I plan on going 15"/380mm in both front and rear. If anybody has photos of their cars of any of these kits please share.

That's exactly what I did. Like you I was only concerned about looks.

BBK shopping regardless of performance? That sounds like some pretty disposable income there. I thought the P-B's looked kinda cool. But really, if you dont care you can blow cash on some better mods elswhere and get a set of dual piston oem's powder coated.

I have the Akebono right now but I feel like they're too small. Especially in the rear.

Akebonos. And Cracka350, a true sports car fun does get it.
What do you say to those who spend hundreds of thousands on cars that never see the road?.

It's a hobby for me, some people just don't get it I guess.
