Shipping to Sweden needed, but would guess that it's not a big deal. :)

Haha will be shipped from closer to you than us in the UK. Just get yours shipped directly and pay the carriage.


General question on the group buy. I assume this price is inclusive of any duty?

I would guess with the group buy it will still be cheaper then buying it directly from them. So if the OP approves, I'm still game regarding the group buy.

Regarding duty, my guess is that UK still haven't added duty for importing goods from other EU countries yet?

Once we have a final list, I will see if Alex will be happy to ship to Sweden directly and just add the postage.

Not sure but will ask the question.

Lets hope so but will check prior to placing an order.


BTW - This is a great response, I originally thought getting 10 would be a struggle but can hopefully see us exceeding 30.

FFS you're buying from Germany.

Of course there's no duty or vat to pay UK side. Alex will charge you vat at source.

For reference my unit was 220.41 Euros delivered to my door by TNT.

Just fitted my BMCS.
couple of points which may help if fitting it yourself

The 2 bolts you remove are in the engine bay and are colour coded.
the bmcs is fitted vertically.
Taking the plastic back surround off about 6 clips allows the device to slip down between cables and engine bulk head. I done this way as cables were tight to diconnect and it created a bit more space.
The nut for the bottom bolt is quite tricky, don't have bolt all the way through as it restricts the fitting of the nut. I lowered the nut with a cable tie around it and turned the bolt
Hope that helps.

Hi from Italy :)
How do you feel the pedal now ?
Do you reccomend this upgrade ?

Ok I have fitted one. A bit fiddly to install just because the nut can drop off, and yes the cables do get in the way a bit, but it’s not hard to fit. Just have a magnet handy in case the nut drops off!

Just my thoughts - personally I think the increase in pedal feel is marginal at the sort of pressures you’re likely to encounter on the road. Maybe on a hot track with a lot of grip, but generally the ABS will trigger before the bulkhead flexes significantly, so it’s not quite the same as pumping the pedal hard in the garage with no forward road speed! Certainly on greasy roads at this time of year you’ll get ABS activation before you feel any significant soft pedal.

The biggest improvement in pedal feel for me was switching out to braided hoses.

It fits perfectly, but I am pretty sure it is made out of 3D printed plastic with a threaded insert? They are able to produce them in different colours, and it’s not powder coated metal, so I am guessing it is 3D printed plastic. Granted it only works in compression so you could argue that it doesn’t need to be made of anything else, but for the price I was expecting something either CNC machined or cast.

What do the GT3 race cars have? Do they have a reinforced bulkhead?

Great write up. Saved me £220.

Not sure, but i track the car often, I have CC brakes,ss braided lines and SRF fuel and would still like a firmer pedal, so im buzzing to get anything that will do this for me....

Thank you for your input though, good to hear it was easy to fit, and good tactic on the magnet, will have one to hand!

Cabletie around nut works well as I didn’t disconnect cable
