:shock: Have you seen the "Buy it Now" price? :? I've bought 3 pairs now, admittedly without the discs etc., but never paid more than £100. With these you will need to fit spacers for the vented discs and probably use braided hoses too.
Cheers, Clive.

I bought an '82 Princess from a bloke in Luton for £60 - drove it to my local scrappy, jacked it up to remove the calipers, and left the rest with him.
Felt guilty ever since - I promised to send him a photo of the car after I'd restored it. Was tempted to send a snap of a crushed metal cube, but didn't have the heart.

Another option, would need a bit of a clean up though.

Definitely buy those, then send to Bigg Redd or Classicar Automotive in Sandbach (or Nantwich, or some such Northern place) for refurb/plating. They will fit the required spacers for you also.
Mind you, I doubt they'll stay at 30 quid for long.
