    seems a bit expensive but brmebo kits start around the 1k mark so 1600 isn't too bad inc fitting, 343 is a fairly big disc too!

    thats quite cheap for AP racing to be honest! You can get as good and bigger for similar money though.

    Vxrs have 322mm anyway , wouldnt it be worth getting brackets for 4 pots made and using original disks for a price compromise ?

    AP are stupid money imo, much much better out there for alot cheaper !

    Should be looking at £1500 for a decent F BBK, but you can get a better spec than that one for the money !

    Surely 6pots are more "overkill" than 4pots?

    How big would your rims need to be to fit 343mm under?
    I wouldn't mind bettin you could knock off £200-300 if you fitted them yourself.
