For the best value.  If you look on the audifans
marketplace today there's a set of new Boxster
calipers for $300.  I just purchases a set of used
calipers for $250 so that's a great deal.  If you can
find aftermarket A8 rotors, they are around $70 each,
but there is a huge shortage right now.  The dealers
are usually around $140 each.  So I'm not sure what a
fortune is to you, but the system 1 is pretty cheep
for what you get.
