    Default Dumbest Question of the Year Contender

    The big brake upgrade at LMF here ............

    Do you just get 2 sets of everything, i.e. just the fronts. I am guessing by the price that you do.

    If you only get 2 for the fronts is there anything to be gained by doing the rears ??

    Cheers

    Yes, just the fronts - 2x calipers, 2 x carriers, 2 x discs and pads.

    Uprating the rears from the 278mm kit to the 292mm will make a difference - it's whether you think it's worth the cost. My 2.0T has 292mm rears as standard, and with the 314mm fronts I upgraded to from the standard 302mm kit it stops superbly. Same brake kit as a 3.0CDTi and a 3.2V6 but in a lighter car.

    Cheers D

    What sort of cost is the 292mm kit, I assume that is a straight to the dealer job to purchase

    No idea m8 (on cost). You'd need to price it up from the part numbers I gave in this thread. Other option is getting it off a car at a breakers - downside is not knowing their full history.
