I purchased my RS2 brackets from Blau years ago for ~$110 for the pair.
The price is much, much higher now I am told. I believe that Sean
Douglas bought RS2 brackets recently.

If you go with the A8 rotors, you should be aware that most people
complain of loud brake squeeling. I don't have a problem with the 993tt
rotors. Also, the A8 rotors will not sit centered in the caliper (not a
problem, but may help contribute to the squeel).
