I ran k-sport 356 kit for years on road and track. Were pretty good for the money.. With xp8 pads. Stopped great. Pads easy to change... Discs were not silly Money.

They did have issues with the seals and sticking pistons, not sure if they still do.

Switched to Alcons all round and you notice the difference.... Lap after lap consistant braking. K sports were quite grabby, alcons are awesome.... But you Pay the dollar.

Depends if you road or track usage?

I've run some for 5+ years and they are great value for money. Been changing discs every track season due to surface cracking (however using XP12 pads which are aggressive) - but put MTEC discs on this year that are looking better so far.

There are no outer rubber seals so can be problematic on an all year round road car.

Having said all that I've just bought some second hand Alcons to change for next year - they were only a little more expensive - however you have to love silver
