RX8 Brake Master Cylinder

Hi all
Anyone found a supplier for a brake Master Cylinder,I've overhauled the rest of the brake system and have now found my MS is leaking.
I can only find new genuine from Mazda £305.00 plus VAT
I'm not keen to fit a repair kit as knowing my luck the cylinder bore is bound to be scored.

Cheers tim

Re: Engine Survey

Hi I have got two PZs one had a rebuild at 65000 and has an unknown maintenance history. I've bought this for Trackdays .

The one i'm using as a road car has been premixed by myself and the previous owner has done 69450 and has not had a rebuild yet.
