Dont take this to heart, as im not needing a set of these, but its been a while and hes not turning over any product for you guys; id say time to find a NEW engineer maybe? Is this a "doesnt matter how long it takes, so long as its done" thing otherwise?

Daniel,

I'd agree. There's bugger all in upgrades for E-series brakes so the market is obviously there. This forum proves it.

The lack of progress for all concerned would be extremely frustrating.

Good point there Daniel.....if these had of been in 2 months ago I would have already paid for them but now since money has been spent on other things will no longer be upgrading the brakes for the time being.

Too much excitement at the start and then a long slow wait which has probably made people lose interest.

Only a slight problem, I don't think to many people will be keen on buy new brakes AND new AU/BA offset wheels to fit them.

I'm due for new discs/pads soon-ish. So if someone workingo n the 'GT' kit needs a guinea pig. Cause if I have to replace things, I won't be buying an upgrade til they need replacing again.

Spacers are cheap. A new set of wheels, especially when I don't want to change mine anyway. No thanks.
