Are you looking to buy, or to sell?
If buying, no problem buying used, especially with those low K’s. take your verniers and measure the rotor thickness to make sure though.
You will also need larger wheels to clear, so you will need to check that out too. (your wheels look to be 18”)

I brought a set of pre-loved E3 Hsv Brakes
Installed the 4 pot Ap racing calipers & rotors (bolt straight up) on my OLD VE SSv Series 2 with VF redline rims that clear the big brakes no problems. Rotors (Hsv)Front 365mm Rear 350mm
I used new Hsv brake lines on the front with new copper washers all round and new Hsv caliper bolts about $6 each. Machined the disks and new Rda extreme brake pads.
Also for the rear brakes, you will need to cut the dust cover at the back of the old rotors to fit the new larger rotors.

VE brembo (12mm) had different caliper bolt size to VF brembo (14mm).

But if these AP come with bolts should be sweet I spose.

Any known combos from AP/DBA/Brembo or the like that are cheaper? @gslrallysport
