    coupe brakes

    dont really think my coupe brakes are up to much so would like to change em for something more effective.

    what size would i need and which ones are the best? ill look to pay £130 for a set plus i reckon new pads are in order.

    im not keen on the whole changing 'caliper to accomodate bigger discs' stuff

    advice greatly appreciated

    280mm discs if u have a NA coupe. 308mm if u have a turbo.. OR 256mm if u have the rare 1.6 4stud coupe

    If u want to fit 308 to NA (5 stud) then all youll need is new calipers.

    Is it just fronts u need or rears too?

    I used to like OE ones but they kick out sh1tloads of dust...

    i really cant recommend any other pads im afraid - might be best waiting for the fellow turbo boys to offer some advice...... or maybe do a quick search

    Iv got greenstuff pads all round and cant grumble to be honest. They are better than what i had on there, bite nice and firm when they have warmed up abit too.

    I think I know which discs i'll be getting when these ones are dead, thats not a bad price!
