    You will need minimum 18" wheels with VXR brakes ...

    Wouldn't bother go for a proper brake kit. Not a bigger single pot caliper.

    VXR stuff is around £800.

    For the money yes it is good Can't go wrong at that price.

    I wouldn't bother with the VXR kit, if you want better than the LMF, time to go for 888 Alcons or APs etc.

    I have the 888 Astra mate and it comes with the 888 Alcon 4 Pot setup with 330mm discs. Not sure if they fit under 17s, you would have to ring VXR to check. They are frankly AWESOME! A 911 Turbo driver took my car out for a spin the other day and commented on they were better than his!

    For the money the LMF kit is a bargain! But if you want something that you want to stop you dead again and again and again without brake fade, it is the 888 kit for sure
