    that is a bargain.

    I normally buy everything brand new but i may consider that sort of deal

    I'm running 18's and was thinking of making a kit up using some R32 discs and brembos

    Why would you want to use R32 disks? they are notoriously expensive!

    I guess with the type of power you will be running, you might want to consider a rear brake upgrade aswell? I'm running ECS stage1 rears with Brembo GT's up front, and the rears are great(overkill even) on the track, my car stops brilliant!
