I was going to get some new wheels with my tax return since I scuffed my OEMs up pretty badly, but this is a too good of a deal to pass up. I just have to wait for that check to arrive and decide how I want to go; Full kit, or kit with no rotors and get front rotors separate, or just get the front kit.

Yes, the Front CZP 2pc rotros are 18lbs, Stock OEM and Stoptech are 28-29lbs. Stoptech rotors are only 1pc at the moment.

Just got the front ones in, just have to mount, test and make sure they'll work. Still waiting on the rears I hate the rear rotors, both 1pc and 2pc are taking forever

Yes, front and rear kits include everything you need to install them.

I was just wondering, is there any difference at all between the Infiniti kit and the Nissan kit? Other than the name on the caliper of course.
