    Default giving up on the brake upgrad

    why are the calipers for the 314 mm brake upgrade so soddin hard to get hold of. ever since i found out on here about the 314 mm front brake upgrade ive been trying to get hold of a set of calipers and can't seem to get em anywhere (other than dealers £££££) and to make matters worse, reading old post from a couple of years ago they seemed to be easy to get. either from lmf or a certain saab dealers. now there like rocking horse doo doo. ive emailed loads of car breakers and all say they dont have em. i ve been searching for calipers from the 3.0 v6 models 04 onwards hope thats right. my wife said if she sees me type the word caliper' in google one more time she is going to kill me lol. the search continues

    I made a mistake by trading my car in march after the sale guy had seen them on.

    I bought the last set from lmf for £350 all in.....

    I could of sold them 5 times over.

    even now it haunts me.......

    Only the later models though

    Have you thought about fitting 302's, a set of green stuff pads and decent discs and they'd be as good as 314's with standard pads

    i saw them on lmf site and thought 'great happy days' but then when i read previous posts i found out they don't stock em anymore. lmf do the discs and pads for a good price, it's just a decent set of calipers etc i need. i did find one set of calipers but they was 2005 and looked a bit grotty and as my car is 08 i thought it may be daft putting old calipers on it, or would it not matter about the age of calipers. i guess my only option is too keep looking. but yeah plasma if yours come up for sale let me know. i also looked into the 302 but was told they arnt that much better that the 285 set up i have now (1.9cdti sri 08)

    No, they're quite a lot better than the 285's. If you can't get 314s, 302's are a good compromise, and a hell of a lot cheaper. When I fitted my 314s, I sold my 302s complete with brand new Vx pads for £53.
