Thanks Pete, good to know ;) TBH my ridiculous OCD wouldn't have allowed me to have different sized discs on the rear as opposed to the fronts so knowing that 356's on the rears won't cause problems is great. Thanks again for the info Pete, very much appreciated :thumright:

Right, after a lot emails and calls to various places to, safe to say club discount of 5% is the best it going to get with these unfortunately. The prices do vary very slightly between some places if you really do try and shop around, but with members discount it brings it just few pounds difference.

Lastly, I have noticed that the “express shipping” charge with some places are £140, where as other listed £120. Just to note, this is per set as in front and then another charge again for rear at £120/140!

Hi guys,

If you find places advertising a £120 express charge it's because they havent updated their prices. Apex Performance has a price hike last year, adding £100 to the price of all their brake kits and £20 to the price of extras.

I expect if you find somewhere that takes your £120 express shipping they will come back knocking when they get their invoice from their supplier :(
Please excuse the spelling mistakes ^^ :D

I'll second that!

From a purely performance point of view (and knowing how Pete likes his calculations) is there much difference in weight and inertia compared to OEM.

I don't think accurate numbers exist, but there isn't much in it. The aluminium calipers are a bit lighter than the stock calipers. The mass of the brake disc is probably similar, but the inertia is probably fractionally higher on the BBK. The inertia is still only a small percentage of the inertia of the wheel and tyre, so I wouldn't worry. My advice would be to choose your brakes purely for their braking performance.

Cheers Pete. Not being a track car, I would think the standard brake setup is perfectly ok for us. But the k-sport sure do look purdy.

I don’t know if it’s just me? But can be a little slow with emails to get replys from Rotary Revs.

Not too familiar with the UK but are you anywhere near RR? If you are within a reasonable distance why not drop in to see him?

That would depend on your definition of "reasonable distance"
