    Default 314 to 345 brake conversion?

    Hi folks, just wondering how easy this is. I'm sure I read somewhere that the calipers are the same, just the discs and carriers that make the difference?

    I need new pads and discs anyways so was thinking about swoppin up. How easy are the carriers to get and what do you recon vx charge for em?

    Cheers.

    There's a thread by GSi 3.2 mate. The carriers cost an arm and a leg, and the pads need looking at also.

    Cheers for that m8, an interesting read, I'll need to see what vx say about the carriers now. I'm not shy about the engineering and altering my calipers, no probs there so I'll need to consider this given the discs on the front are knackered anyway!

    Thanks for your help.
