    And probably bigger wheels as well, depending on what you have at the moment.

    From what I've seen when I looked back in his posted threads its got 19's on so no issues.

    You'll just need disc, pads, calipers and caliper carriers. The shield at the back of the disc may require cutting as well.

    Bite his hand off mate, the fronts alone are about 700 quid new from courtenays

    And you might want to change the flexi's to braided pipes, its only an extra 50 quid

    780 squid, plus about 500 for the rears...

    Having said that, new pads and discs for the fronts are 400 quid from VX alone, so secondhand buys are only really worth it if you get nearly new discs and pads with them. If you buy a setup for the fronts for (say) 300 quid, but the discs and pads are shot, then you end up spending another 400 to buy new ones and the cost has then risen to almost the same as a brand new setup...
