    Don't forget to upgrade the rear calipers, discs, and pads too!
    On the V6 CDTI they are ventilated rear discs, quite unusual

    there is no need to upgrade the rears,its the front that does most
    of the braking and as i was told that the abs controls the braking
    and if the front is overloaded then the abs transfers the extra load to
    the rear anyway and thats why there is no need for brake modulators.
