BIRA has four brake kits for the Type 44.  All require a 16in or 17in

For non-UFO cars

System 1: Boxster Monoblocs over 312x25mm Audi USA8 rotor - around $1000

System 3: 996 Monoblocs, over 314x30 mm Audi EuroA8 rotor -  around
System 6: 996tt Monoblocs, over 993tt/GT-2 322x32mm rotor ring with BIRA
Hats - around $2000

Systems 1 and 3 have thousands of miles on them.  Sys 6 will begin
testing this month on a couple of urS6s and an S4bt.

For UFO cars

Sys2UFO: 996 Monoblocs, over a 320x30mm directionally vented rotor:
probably around $1400

Sys2UFO will begin testing this month.

I have the largest and heaviest of the Type 44, a '91 20v Avant, I run
Sys 3.
