Steve and the ultimate garage (www.ultimategarage.com) has a complete kit. It is the "bomb" but be prepared to part with a lot of cash and you have to make sure that you have 17" wheels and spacers to make the right clearance. These are big and need some extra room.<br>

<br>Unless you are looking for a braking performance increase (by going to Porsche kit) you can just paint the calipers red. I think it was Alan who did this on his Z3 and has pictures around some place. I think there is special paint for such things as the heat involved is pretty extreme.<p>Regards,<br>Preston
