[s-cars] going BIG

My advice is to forget all about relative cost of the options, and  
just budget for a Stoptech BBK.  Then if you find a less expensive  
solution that meets your needs (you haven"t said what they are),
then you can feel really good about it.   Debating this is like  
arguing the merits of the financial rescue plan--there are good parts  
to all proposals--be sure to read the fine print so you understand
the total cost and advantages of each.  And, since you don't really  
"need" to do anything, maybe cost is a factor to consider.

I like the Porsche 993tt calipers and rotors, but if there was a  
Boxter kit right in front of me at half the cost, I might want to try  
it, even though I would wonder why the Boxter S needed bigger brakes
but my heavier car didn't.
