Whats wrong with the old ones?.

To be honest,I haven't had a great deal of sucess with caliper repair kits.If the piston is seized or tight,then it's usually corroded and won't seal properly to new seals anyway.

If it's just the sliders that are giving trouble,then they can be repaired,otherwise I would buy re-conned calipers.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
