Just received my callipers back from Contract Engineering. Painless process and they seem to know what they are doing, sent them less than 2 weeks ago.
Cost about £100/side.

As I'm just back from BG Developments who would not take them, I'm interested!


Just about to use them for a refurb on my front "AP Racing" calipers. Big Red not interested/able to referb AP calipers.

Final update on this thread for me. The left calliper has now failed and the handbrake doesn't release. This was the one that was 'successfully' refurbished by BCS. it has lasted less than a year and done less than 1000 miles. The car is garage parked with the handbrake off so it is only used when out and about.

 

I will be buying a new unit from eliseparts. I now have two big paper weights.

Just packaged up this lot to send to Contract Auto Engineering.
We’ll see if they do as good a job as they did last time…Posted Image

Used them recently for a rear caliper I picked up cheap on fleabay. Took about three weeks but looks like they did a good job.
