Default Brembo brake upgrade kit for 9-5 Aero

Hi fellow saabists!

Has anyone got this brake kit by Brembo on 9-5?
http://www..se/shop/prod/sp_br_uppgr_bak.shtml

I mean the kit on the top of the page, it includes 4 piston calibers by Brembo, 314mm discs, brake pads and brakelines. Costs about 1000e/$1350.

It would be nice to hear some experiences.. is it worth it compared to the stock brakes on 9-5 Aero -02 ? I wonder if they really have more stopping power or is it just improved cooling etc..

These would be mainly for some occasional track fun, I know the stock brakes are more than adequate for daily driving

And my previous car with 323mm discs (discs from an Evo michined to fit):

I think they look great Chris..

I guess it removed the name of the parts selling company from the link, is posting links to part sellers websites forbidden ?

The calibers in the kit looks like yours at least.. can you say something of the stopping power compared to stock Aero brakes?

Even the 308mm ones (on my black car) are a huge improvement over aero brakes - I have driven a few Saabs and nothing compares stock wise.

But the bigger disc, the 323's we so much better and are now on the track car - they are that good

To be honest the brakes are my all time favorite upgrade on the car just a shame I didnt put the bigger ones on cos I was spoilt before
