Aluminum shock mounts
HAWK HPS pads
Braided Stainless Steel Lines
ATE Type 200 Brake Fluid (Amber)

More to come shortly...as it all arrives in the mail. Prepping for the Nurburgring this summer!

I'm surprised that it would be worth it to go through the hassle of ordering TMS stuff over in Germany when you could easily order from the local German brands. Does TMS have distribution in Germany.

Nice selection of stuff but seriously consider ordering a set of camber/caster plates.

Since I have an APO address it is actually cheaper to order parts from the States. Dollars vs. Euro and no VAT tax. If the Euro keeps coming down, that may change.

I do have camber plates and rear control arms in the mail...just waiting for them to arrive. I also have my new camber/caster gauge in the mail!

I went with KMac. I have seen negative and positive reviews (much like any product). So I decided to try them out myself. I couldnt imagine KMac still being in business if the parts they produced were oh so horrible.
