How is buying the value kit cheaping out? Its the indentical part but bundled for particular markets.

Also-
The link you provided is for the older 323/328 model - those brakes are less expensive than for the 330i. It is NOT the same comparison. The brakes are different. The newer brakes/rotors are much more. Have a look.

The Value Kit for the 323/328 is even cheaper than the 330i.
