Did it, went with BIRA S6-S6 before their presence made the competition
nervous enough to drop prices.  Don't forget to compare replacement
rotor & pad prices, weight if available, caliper repair/replacement
in case something nasty eats the seals or bores.

I would go w/ BIRA again, or a competitor that uses OEM parts and is
priced on par.  By using factory parts, I figure the odds of them
being available and at predictable prices are improved.  Some 16"
wheels fit over the big red 993tt calipers, mine is System 6 and some
16s will fit over the 996tt calipers (which are lighter and carry a
bit more pad).
