The calipers aren't that heavy. I seem to remember my c6z calipers seemed lighter than the c5 calipers. What is heavy are those huge brake rotors. The C6z rotors must weigh twice that of the c5...

I don't think my car is worth anywhere near $30k. Agreed, its worth more in parts than as a whole. Might go that route.
