Front Brembo BBK and a rear H6 upgrade?

I am looking to do a front Brembo BBK and a rear H6 upgrade.

What are people's thoughts? Will the bias be horrible or decent? Will I understeer like crazy or are people exaggerating? I would like to hear from people who have done this upgrade.

What do you do that requires a BBK? Kinda overkill for most.

Your brakes ability to slow you down is only as good as the tires you use. BTW, braking doesn't cause understeer, that's a suspension issue.

Peronally, I can't see justifying the expense of a BBK unless it's a dedicated track car with sticky tires or you suffer from some sort of rotor envy. With an aggressive track compound like Hawk 9012 or HT10s on the stock calipers, the tire is still going to be the weak link in braking.
