A work of art! :o

How many used Saabs can I buy for the price of one set of those?

I have no idea how much the 12 Pots are, but the 6 pots and 8 pots are cheaper than AP Racings 4 pot kits and much better quality materials are used, but still fairly expensive... a six pot brake kit for the 9-3SS would be around USD $1800 or 1000.

:o Slight overkill for any road going Saab I think :! Good bling potential though :!

Wonder whether the caliper takes four seperate pads or just a pair of big bannana shaped ones :-?? :lol:

Why upgrade the rears? Isnt most of the brake power absorbed by the front brakes anyway?

Raggy already has a reasonably monster-like set up on the front :wink:

They even passed the Type P ballast test with one of the highest scores ever... :cheesy:
