    focus rs brembos

    I know its been mentioned a couple of times in the past as ive searched and searched.

    Ive been looking everywhere about fitting them and so far this is what ive found out the standard RS discs are (324mm x 26mm) and the astra gsi discs are (308mm x 25mm) so theres only a 1mm difference in thinkness between the two so i cant see a problem there.

    But i was really wanting to use vxr discs as there bigger at (321mm x 28mm), But theres the odiously problem that the discs with be to wide, Do you think that i could push the piston back far enough back for them to fit? or is this not a good idea

    Thought about just buying a kit from hi spec etc. Direct fit then and will prob be cheaper than getting focus callipers then getting pads then getting disks then getting brake lines then getting mounting adapters. Just a thought

    I know you cant beat the sense of achievement, But like you said it might work out cheaper getting a kit
