    Hey mate,I'm currently I'm the middle of this upgrade myself so I can help a bit.
    The carriers I bought from Creations Motorsport- Creationsmotorsport.com,,Porsche->-VAG-Brake-Adapters
    The disks I have ordered from a company called Mintbitz(0800 411 8007), I have ordered 330x28mm disks ment for an Alfa Brera,but Mintbitz are redrilling them and making up spigot rings aswell. Braided lines I bought from Badger 5. This little project has nearly cost me a grand now including refurbing the calipers,I better stop on a 2p piece when it's finished! Also,I don't know what wheels your running but check clearance!

    Will do Sean. The calipers are at the paint shop at the moment,and I've just Hammerite'd the pad retaining springs. Just guna have a hunt around the forum for recommended brake fluid and when the disks turn up it's all systems go!
