Here it is being launched at Castle Combe by these good people.

It looks a nice bit of kit.

...I was waiting for it --> I hope M3W service will offer it at a resonable price level.

There’s been a delay, as ‘surprise surprise’, we found variations in the rear end that required some adjustments to the mounting hardware. We are manufacturing a small production run for fitting by Craig in Swindon and Steve in South West France. Once we have fitted more kits and are happy that we have a kit that can be installed by an enthusiastic owner, we will release it for sale. The rear brake disc kits installed on Craig & Steve’s M3W’s have clocked up over 5000km now with great performance results. More news end of November.
