WTB: 993TT/928GTS/D2 S8 Brembo calipers

Postby amd is the best » Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:26 am

My B5 desperately needs a new set of calipers. If anyone here has a set, knows of a set or ever comes across a set please let me know.

Any of the following:
Porsche/Brembo 993TT "Big Red"
Porsche/Brembo 928GTS "Big Black"
Audi/Brembo D2 S8

Used is preferred as I'd like to keep costs down as much as possible...mostly because I hate the B5 :D

Thank you all!
Nick

Would NAPA even have S8 front calipers? Even if they did they would want a set back as cores to rebuild.

I'm still waiting to heat back as they are special order. Just making sure I can get something lined up.

Believe it or not, even with the core charge I'd just pay it. On top of that, I'd still try and return my junk ECS tuning knock-off's as a core.

Only problem with that idea is they don't actually have the calipers -they ship yours to A1 Cardone and A1 Cardone rebuilds them and sends them back to you...

If you really are willing to pay a core charge for a set, this is your best bet:

Just under $600 for remanufactured calipers with free shipping... (They're only about 2 hours away from you, too)

Just thought to look at the 928 GTS calipers and they are much cheaper:

$434 out the door for a pair of remanufactured big blacks!
