    just carriers, calipers, discs and pads mate, and whilst your at it i would recomend the goodridge braided hoses but make sure these are the 314 discs and not 302, unless you dont mind the slightly smaller disc, and its around 2003 they changed them, so im not sure if they will be 302mm or 314mm, well worth asking though mate. hope you get what you need

    brakes4u.co.uk is a good web site for discs and pads, and if you phone them, i have found, that they are always willing to match any price from else where. and very helpfull and next day delivery to your door, used them a few times now. i have someone coming on friday to collect them mate, so sorry, but will let you know if it falls through ps i got my hoses from these people for cheeper than that, but they are made to order, so not cheep any way, but a quality upgrade

    There are a couple of 314mm brake setups on eBay, can pm you the links if you want mate... it's the one to go for over the 302 though, can't recommend them enough...
