It remains to be seen whether these Hayes calipers are still functioning as they should be in say, two years time and 20K miles + used.   :084:

We'll see.

Why wouldn’t they? Are Brembo’s guaranteed to work 2 years later?

Because there have already been recalls involving the BMW branded Hayes' calipers?

Even in Vietnam they have Brembo instead of Hayes, now I don't understand, I was only thinking about the USA and Canada for the safety issue, But now that they also have Brembo in Vietnam, I wonder why we Europeans + Uk bmw leave us the Hayes?

Weird but I have no issues with having Hayes/BMW callipers. They work well, feel is very good and they look good too. Fingers crossed there's no issues.

My wife's GS had the Hayes calipers for over 2 years/12k miles without any issue at all. They were just replaced(just because they're being replaced under recall).
