[Es2] Coupe 5 lug conversion - Brakes

If I may interject, the RS2 caliper brackets are a proven combination
for urS cars and those with the same strut housings and G60's (V8's
and 200q20v's) when used with A8L rotors and 993tt calipers, which are
available in red or black (the black ones are actually 928gts units).
I don't know if 996 non-turbo calipers are the same as the big reds
and blacks, although they all bolt onto the RS2 bracket.  Would there
be an advantage to using the 996 non-turbo calipers instead of the
993tt or 928gts, or are you just looking for options?

I bought the parts to do that "cheap" big brake conversion to my
200q20v, but then I bought a billzcat1 Turn 9 setup off Audifans to
use instead.  A friend said he would buy my big black-based set off
me, but if he doesn't then I would have one available for sale.  I
should know pretty soon as soon as his house closes. ;-)
