I know if I were looking at 2 kits with a 10,k difference then I'd consider using the 10,k on upgrading internals. You'll end up making more reliable power and be able to use for a longer time......

I think it depends on the car.. a white 325 w/ stock wheels and tan interior will look great with wood.. A lowered silver w/ aggressive wheels and black interior, though?

The consensus I've read is to use ceramic pads for least compromises in dust and best braking. Note: 'least compromises' still means there are some.

I take it you're running that in the rear only? I wanted to run the same size front and rear so I could rotate. I seriously doubt I could run a 255 in the front without it rubbing at the stops.
