    But they have been out of stock @ LMF for quite a while now. I keep checking every week to see if they have any in stock.

    Don't always believe what LMF say on their web site.

    I was up the creek a few months ago with shagged calipers and, even though LMF were out of stock, I phoned Steve at LMF and £320 later (inc P&P) and within 48 hours, a new 314mm kit arrived on my doorstep. Steve did say that some of the bits that make up the kit (wasn't specific) were getting hard to find and that he may have to put the price up in the future.

    Well worth a call to discuss your predicament.

    sounds pretty good,when you say indapendant garage,you mean one other than the likes of arnold clarke,peter vardy or curtis.
