The IE kits offer a lot of bang for the buck, if I were upgrading I would definitely take that route. For 330mm rotors with 2-piston calipers in the front and 310mm rotors in the rear, $2175 is an amazing price.

the problem is the replacement costs of the rotors..... i wanted to just by the 13" rotors and aluminum hats from them, it was around 7-800 for 2 rotors and hats....

not really that bad, i guess...

they wont answer my emails, i was wondering if they are mustang rotors, because the pads are cobra pads. the calipers also could be mustang parts, but then it would need brackets. i really didnt want brackets and wanted something that bolted dirctly in place. anyway thanks guys, i guess when i buy my 3.0L stocker kit i'll get the ie brakes front/rear also. if they would tell me what components i could get them locally for almost nothing under the shop name, i rarely get parts unless they are though the shop discount, and ie wont give a break to shops. what porsche brakes fit the e30?
