Bought them from Harold at HPA a few weeks back. I think it took about 3 weeks to ship because I ordered the front and back. Just put them on and had the car out at Sears Point yesterday and they make an insane amount of difference. When the normal setup cooks or even the OEM rotor/caliper/cool carbon pads used to cook, these were rock solid. When they heated up the response changed a bit, but was still super controllable.

What I'm saying is: talk to Harold. Order them. You won't be disappointing.

Notes: A: Do not use UPS. They only delivered 3/4 boxes and lost the last. Hell to track it down.
B: the instruction manual is mostly right, but not 100%. The stainless lines are not quite as described in the manual, and you need to use the washers on the female ends of the lines that join to the stock system. Also, the manual for the rear lines is way off.
C: 11mm midget wrench. You need this. Or you need to drop the subframe.
