Pad advice.

In the more distant future what sort of money am I looking at for a caliper upgrade? Brembo's ideally, although I realize there may be an issue of wheel change to accommodate the larger disc's and calipers.

Cheers

Ps was looking for pad advice but just had a read of another thread, hence the ''pad advice''

Re: Pad advice.

Good news, I'll give them a shout tomorrow. Dose anyone reckon its worth changing the disc's as well? There're not overly worn, slight lip on the edge. If so are grooved or drilled replacements worth a look with standard calipers? Or should I just save the dolla for a caliper and disc upgrade?

All down to funds really did the disc pass the service limit if so if having the money I would upgrade to new calipers and discs

Re: Pad advice.

They passed the service, just the pads needed attention really. Do have the cash for a caliper and disc upgrade, will I need to upgrade the wheels to allow for the larger disc's and calipers?
