I have a complete front brake kit by Baer for the 00-11 Focus (00-05 need the SVT knuckle). I am hoping to get $400 for the setup. The kit includes the dual-piston calipers, pads, brackets, rotors, SS lines, etc. Here are a few pics. I will upload more, soon. Thanks!

I don't know the exact mileage, but the pads still have a good amount of life in them. My guess would be 10k or less.

I will have to confirm, but I believe the calipers use the same pads as some of the recent SVT Cobra Mustangs, so pads won't be an issue. Also, Baer should be offering parts such as rotors since the kit is still for sale at different retailers.

Hope this helps!

This is a great bbk. You can get rotors & pads. A great upgrade on the rotors is the 2 piece ones. The Baer Matrix pads are awesome. oem svt wheels fit this too.

How much of a step up are these over the stock SVT brakes? The stock are single piston calibers with 300mm rotors and these are 2 piston 328mm rotors. Spec wise they have it but what about real world. Of course the Brembo are 4 piston but they retail @ $2975 and these when new sold for $795.

These are 330mm rotors, so you have more than an inch in diameter difference. Pretty big difference. Well, I've had experience with SVT brakes, and they're good, no doubt. I think you'll see a difference with these on unsprung weight (these calipers are much lighter) and with fade resistance. Day to day driving? You may not notice a huge difference. If you ever go for a track day. I think you'll notice the difference in the way these brakes hold up. Hope this helps.

The setup was purchased early in 2013 (see the packing slip), so not too many miles. :)

Pics added. Let me know if any questions arise. Again, not sure of the exact mileage on the setup, but if since they were purchased last February, shouldn't be more than 15k-ish. I bought these from another Focus owner, but sold my ST, so now I don't have any use for them. Too bad they can't be made to fit my Mk3. :(

You know as I was typing my response I was actually answering my question as I read over the facts I was writing. As much as I would like to buy this set up I can't at this point. I don't believe my new last winter, winter wheels and tires would fit over these disks as they are only 16" wheels. There are other items higher on the list as needed. It is nice to know there are other options out there than just the Brembo brakes. Good luck with your sale!

they don't list these on their website anymore....by vehiucle or part #, I wonder if they've been discontinued? If so, might suck for replacement parts. IIRC, the rotors are like $157 a side. :(

Sounds like finding parts isn't a problem, according to other members. As to prices, I would assume it depends on where you get the parts. I would call Baer with ques5ions about part availability.
