    Default Brake ducts

    I read somewhere that the GSI and police vehicles were fitted with brake ducts to keep things cool. Can these be fitted to sri's (53 plate) And if so anyone know how much?

    Rushy, I looked into these brake ducts after seeing them on EPC.
    They seemed to pick up next to fog light & then go through wheel arch liner.
    I did see some markings on the back side of liner.
    The only problem is, went to price up & ducts have been replaced by 2 blanking covers.
