Brembo big brake kit??

I have been looking on the internet and would like to know if any body can recomend a company in the UK that sells the Brembo Big Brake Kit. I have always fitted AP in the past but fancy a change but only seem to see the for sale on USA company based sites! They seem to go for around 2560.00 in the USA and if possible would hope to pay the same in the UK as an Italian company (I think?)

To my understanding Brembo makes AP Racing kits, just under a different brand name..

AP is a subsidiary of Brembo, I don't think Brembo actually makes their brakes. AP's design makes it better for track junkies to play around with pads, I don't there's enough stats to say that it's better than the Brembo kits.
