Probably even cheaper and closer.
Not sure, I think the TUV applies.

The problem is that I never asked before buying, and I assumed they were made enterely in the states (have a look to their site, is full of "US", "never compromise", "superior performace" and so on). THIS IS MY FAULT AND I CLEARLY ADMITTED IT.
Regarding the European kits, i have to say that many other options are available (e.g., the BMW Performance rotors), but to say the truth no kit offers the same specs/price ratio and is available for both front and rear from the same vendor. Brembo BBK (or similar kits) was not an option due to the cost (in excess of 2500 euro). The favourable exchange ratio USD/EUR had a role, too. And, finally, I've experienced always exceptional results with "made in USA" stuff.
As simple as that.
