Brembo Brakes on All 4 Tires?

I'm wondering if any of you guys have seen or no of a way to get Brembos on the rear of the SS/TC. I have the 4 piston Brembos in the front and stock calipers in the rear (stock set-up). Want to try and get something more interesting back there. It would mainly before for aesthetics since most of the braking is done via the front of the car but still want something nice to look at when it comes to the rear brakes.

The TC comes with an awesome brake system stock. I get that the rear calipers don't look as sexy as the fronts, but remember that there is a very delicate balance between the front and rear brakes. Putting beefier calipers on the rear will just make you lock up your rear tires and wreck. Unless you re-do front AND back the proper way to restore the brake balance, I would advise against it. On top of that, upgrading the brake system is unnecessary. I road track my car with close to 500whp and all I changed on my brakes is stainless lines and race pads.

Better than a rusted caliper showing through. Can't tell from 10 feet away. The guy did say it was for estetics only.
