My rears are causing issues and just trying to work out to send mine off to get them refurbished or, get a pair of known good rears? Has anyone got a good pair? If so, PM me.

Last year there were no refurbed 924S/turbo front and rear calliper stock in the market at companies like BigRed, Max or through motor factors. I was being forced to remove my existing front and rear callipers and send for refurb or buy used units off fleabay as there were none on offer through here. There was a 2-4wk delay in some cases to get the callipers fully refurbished including plating. Sellers wanted £40-80 per calliper for used needing a refurb which I could not justify. After some months of searching and waiting I slowly found refurbed stock so could unbolt all of mine and refresh all the brakes in one day and avoid it being off road for weeks. I would prefer to hold onto my old callipers in case I need to refurb/replace a calliper and not go through the same pain again. Lets hope there are easier options now. But if you are stuck let me know. I will need good used callipers back to go back on my shelf.

This seems to be where I am.
I don’t really want the car off the road that long but, it’s looks that I’ll probably be going down the same route.
I don’t want to think of how many I have junked as worthless!!
