    Brake upgrade

    Iv been looking at the front 308mm disc brake upgrade kit on LMF for my coupe turbo.

    Is there a way I can do this abit cheaper than the £235 they want?

    What bits would I need?

    or is it worth just buying the kit, thanks.

    Also would the discs and caliper actually fit behind the standard turbo rims?

    You have the 308mm set up already

    No, but you only need new caliper carriers and 308mm discs if you are 5-stud already so far as I know
