    i suppose the price is right considering standard calipers can be had for about £20 each, do you know if it spossible to refurb these calipers mate or anything i can do to make sure they would be in top condition? the guy has given his word they are fine and off a car with under 70000 miles on it.

    You could probably buy a refurb kit but I doubt their cheap.

    do a visual check of the rubbers. Ensure sliders are nice an smooth operation an apply a really thin layer or grease.

    fit them bleed them an check arnt grabbing or sticking.

    70k is fine it's half the mileage of my car an touch wood had no front caliper dramas

    My original front offside caliper seized and was replaced under warranty in October 2009 (4 years and 94K miles)
    I then paid for the front nearside to be replaced at the same time, that was £210 (note that was the complete assembly; caliper, carrier, and half set of pads and disc)

    just checked, these calipers are just over 60000 miles old, 2005.


    i dont think they come with bolts, are the bolts different to the standards?
