    Brake Upgrade

    Im in some need for bigger discs upfront as im rollin on 18's and my brakes look pathetic.....

    I was all set to buy the hi-spec 285mm upgrade from PVD but they through a spanner in the works and said i needed different calipers aswell the ATE calipers.... My question is will i get away without buying new calipers or is there another way of getting around this

    I have also noticed the 1.8 16v with ABS is standard with a 288mm disc is there an easyway of getting these from vaux and fitting them...

    Any help appreciated..

    Yeah when you want bigger discs you have no choice but bigger calipers too, find some second hand calipers from brakers, or above posts etc.

    Then get the new discs and pads to suite.

    Gobs an expencive one, LOL and a good one.

    Have a look at the link m8 , the brake upgrades are very cheap and i don't expect you can get it cheaper from anywhere else . Btw the kits LMF come from them .
