I'm thinking about combining the VXR discs which IIRC are 345mm with some Porsche Boxter S 4 pot callipers, I'm only thinking of this as I've spotted these callipers for sale somewhere, VXR discs shouldn't be too hard to obtain, I know I'd need adaptors and calliper brackets made up which again isn't too much of a trouble, plus the hose adaptors, or braided jobbies, wheels would need to be bigger than my current 17's but other than that, would there be any other real issues?
I know there are alot of mechanical minded people floating about on here and I'd really appreciate the opinions,
They don't HAVE to be Porsche brakes but I really fancy the idea of 4 pot brakes seeing as the wheels I'm looking at getting are 20" and would show them off nicely! and thought the Porsche ones would be a nice little feature as well as the added performance and looks, the thing is I'm not wanting to spend an absolute fortune, unfortunately
I don't have money trees growing in the back garden like Spoons & Andy etc
I'm just looking for the easiest solution to this, I've recently priced up a kit from Rimstyle, the Hispec monster 4 kit, which comprises of:
Billet 4 piston callipers (In a choice of colours)
335mm Discs either grooved or drilled (or a combination of both for an extra £50)
Mounting bells for discs (In a choice of colours)
Fitting kit (i.e bolts etc.)
EBC green stuff pads
rear discs to match design of fronts
That lot came to £1164.00 + they had a 0% interest free finance option, was so tempted to just go for that, get it on finance and be done with it, but a few pals have talked me out of it for now and have advised I explore other routes that could save me some big cash against that price, it was one pal who advised that I go for the VXR discs and get some callipers off something big and have the adaptors and brackets made up to match,
Anyway, sorry for the really long post, I just wanted to be as thorough as possible to show what avenues I'vee explored thus far.
