    I'm in the process of upgrading to Volvo front calipers, and '77 vented rotors. All my current brake hardware is almost new, but I am going to be spending a lot of time on the track and I want something with a little more cooling and grip. All of my parts have about 2,000 miles on them. I bought the calipers new a few years ago, not re manufactured. I know the remanufactured ones go for about $40 + core charges, so I'll price mine right around that. Nothing's wrong with them, I just don't want this stuff sitting around in my apartment. So I'll list off what I have, what it cost new, and what I would like to get for them. If anybody needs any of it, let me know. All prices are OBO.

    1980 Front Left Caliper: $339 - For sale for $45
    1980 Front Right Caliper: $335 - For sale for $45
    (Calipers come loaded with Mintex pads, and obviously no core charge)

    1980 Rotors: $35 ea - for sale for $20 ea
    1980 Master Cylinder (reservoir not included): $139 - For sale for $40

    Remember, all this stuff was brand new, not remanufactured. I'll give a $10 discount if you buy all of it. So that's $160 for an almost brand new set of front brakes. If anyone's interested, let me know. I think the price is pretty fair, but if you disagree let me know and we can work out a deal.

    By the way, I got an insane deal on some 323i vented rotors - Rock Auto was having a warehouse closeout and was selling them for EXTREMELY cheap. I bought their entire stock - 12 rotors for $100.
