One thing I have noticed about this car is that it has awesome stopping power. The [front] brakes are better than those on my Ferrari. The calipers on the 360 (as well as Cadillac CTS, etc.) are nicknamed the "Throwaway" calipers because they are non-rebuildable. The calipers on the Type-S are the aluminum billet racing ones. I paid $3,800.00 for a pair of these for the front of my NSX. I drove the NSX so hard that the plastic center caps melted and fell out of the back wheels, but the front calipers were still cool enough that I could put my hand on them.
Good job Acura!
Does anybody know of any upgrades for this system? For example, cross drilled rotors for the front, similar calipers for the rear.

Guess it all depends who makes the brake calipers. My Porsche turbo has Brembo rebranded Porsche and are all rebuildable.
Think the type S are Brembos also.

My '07 TL Type-S does indeed have Acura rebranded Brembo calipers/pads in front. Not sure on back as I haven't changed the pads there yet.
