    V6 Brakes

    Im needing new pads and discs soon, im just wondering if a V6 upgrade from LMF is any good. its on £195. Are they easy fit? is it worth upgrading? My standards look like little buttons behind my alloys.

    4 stud def get it! makes a difference as dave will tell you... saved my rear bumper. ( cheers by the way dave! )


    Not sure if an upgrade from 5 stud brakes would make that big a difference?? If they would I'd be interested too like!

    I was looking at them too. Should imagine they will be for 4 stud fitment which mine is aswell. The advert does say Four-stud V6 upgrade only £195 ... which is a damn good price really as the normal price I see is around the £300 mark.

    cool. In which case def get them! they also look cool - nice and big behind the rims.

    Has anyone with a 5 stud car upgraded to the 308mm brakes? This is what I'm thinking of doing!

    This package comprises of 288mm discs, pads and callipers. Not 308mm discs unfortunately.

    yeah sorry, was being totally clear as mud there lol! The 288mm set is great for 4 stud cars... some 5 stud cars have that anyway, or really near it, so the equivalent upgrade for them is the turbo discs which is 308mm.
