    Default 4 Or 6 Pot Calipers

    Hi Guys,

    I currently have 345mm VXR brakes fitted to my SRi. I'm looking at ways to reduce weight of the brake set-up. One thing I noticed when I bought this set-up is how heavy and pointless the calipers seem. Does anyone know where I can get some lightweight 4 or 6 pot calipers to fit the standard 345mm discs?

    Cheers for any advice.

    Spoons is the only one I can think of that's gone down this route. Check out some of his threads.

    No one's changed to 4 or 6 cylinder calipers and kept the same disks, not even Spoons. You'll need to change your whole set up - calipers, carriers, disks and pads. Here's one option that will fit the Vectra, obviously many others are also available:
