You're in a tough spot. G60's just aren't enough brake for your car (it
weighs what, about 300 lbs more than mine?), UFO's are just plain pricey,
and so is the 993 conversion, though once that's done, replacement of
wear parts becomes much more "normal". I'd start either saving up for or
piecemealing the 993 conversion if I were you.
