they don't look too bad- maybe a bit bulky with a lot of unnecessary metal on the bottom side, but too much is better than not enough, i guess. i just wonder why they use the metric calipers? they are small, but cheap to get. the price doesn't seem too bad- you might have a couple hundred into the swap after you buy the brackets, rotor, calipers, hoses, and a master cylinder, which isn't too bad, i guess.

Whats the point of only going to a 10.5" rotor? If your going to go through the trouble might as well step up to 12 or 13", not that much more work.
