Sell them because Sport brakes have bad pad availability. Well... sell fronts. Keep rear brackets. Run sport rotors with 1.8 calipers in back, BBK up front.

</p><p>From recent research, I need the M-Tuned bracket for the rear sport rotor, I can't just put a 1.8 caliper on sport brackets. I already have a set of rear sports.</p><p>We're talking about running the sports brakes until next fall, then selling them with pads and everything.</p>

Ah, I see

I missed one the other day, 2K for a 1.6 with HT. I could have refreshed it with **** I've taken off mine and sold it for 2 easy.

I'm not quick enough when it comes to CL though, not at all.
