    Brake Upgrades

    I've got a 1.6 8 Valve 5 door. I wanna upgrade both front and rear discs and calipers and pads. I only want to get the best.
    Can someone tell me which size discs are the biggest to get on the front and rear?
    I was also thinking about 4 pot calipers by Hi-Spec..thoughts?
    What about pads? What brand and what colour??
    All advice welcomed... thanks guys hope to see you all at the Southend seafront soon.

    id just get the turb ones 310mm at the front, and the turb clipers will go straight on too, you can get the 310mm disks drilled in 4 or 5 stud.

    Pads..... Id go with EBC but standard vaux pads are plenty good enough.

    if you want rear disks the best thing to do (if you have 5 stud hubs) would be to get a rear beam of a turb or sri etc, you will need to change the hand brake cable to i think.
