Been offered a brembo BBK(calipers only) will have to purchase everything else myself which is no problem,

And, also been offered a Mugen Spoiler. Can only afford one or the other.

Howdy Luke.

Hope your well.

What works out cheaper? I opted to go with just discs, pads, lines as apposed to BBK.

I want to get a mugen Spoiler also.

Well hoping to get brembos for < £500, then S2000 disks £70ish? Do luck hoses £120ish Pads front and rear £180ish? and fluid.

Only want the BBK for bling lol, pads + lines etc would easily suffice for performance.

However, brand new Mugen Spoiler been offered for £1,100.

What ya reckoning?

Yeah mate im good thanks, how about yourself?

Your project is coming along nicely!!!

well let's make the option easier.... do you want 'bling' or do you want performance? I got the Wing and it looks the works :)... however as for performance, there isn't any realistic noticable... all I know it looks great :p

I would say get the wing for now and just paint your brakes red. Then get the BBK later on in the year. Unless of course your going to be tracking your car then Id say get the BBK.

Literllay, cant make the phone call.

Always get like this, convinve myself to get it, then convince my self not 2 lol.

The hardest thing is phoning the Mrs up, and she says, get it if you want, you'll only end up getting it at a later date. Is this reverse psycology lol?

Do you really need the BBK? If it was me I'd go for the wing but that's just my opinion
