    haha i know, looks spot on in the sunshine and in person, bit more drop though, 20mm spacers on front look much better, tryin to find a company to do all the exterior plastic (grey stuff) in genuine carbon fibre, proving tricky

    How much were these out of interest? There are quite a few sets on Piston Heads. What else did you have to buy?

    Looking good matey, are those 996 carrera rear calipers? They look like them.

    What size discs are you using? looking at the brackets I'd say 312's still?

    I'm just waiting for my 996 rear calipers to arrive with 325mm discs :)

    How do these stop you? what's the pedal feel like?

    How are they Jimmy?

    Be honest too! These calipers are getting a slating on here at the moment, which I'm not too happy about as I've got a set on their way to me!

    How's the pedal feel?

    What's the stopping power like?
