    None of the 314mm kits from LMF or SAAB use the original calipers.... Snake oil, perhaps?

    Oh..and Buy It Now for £320 - I'd rather go to LMF

    Just not convinced m8, the genuine setup includes new calipers which are big enough to accomodate the new discs and pads...

    If this kit just has the caliper brackets, I think it would not only look strange to see the standard calipers over big discs, but you might not get the same braking effect...

    Just seems too good to be true at that price...

    Although they are getting more in this week but I think they have all been taken up unless people drop out.
