Brembo's

Hi all!

I've got my eye on a set of 2nd hand brembo's, inc calipers, pads and disc's. Firstly will they fit my 04 WRX?? If so what sort of price is a reasonable offer?? The disc's are a little rusty but I assume thats something that can get sorted?

Cheers chaps!

Re: Brembo's

pretty sure they wont go under your wheels, brembo's have a pretty large offset.

as far as the rust goes as long as they havn't been sat there for years the pads will just wear the rust away. give them a good brush with a hard wire brush to get rid of any loose bits before there fitted

The chap said he reckoned that they would fit but maybe he's desperate to get shot of them? He's looking for around 500 for the whole set.

they def go under sti wheels, but not sure about wrx.

as far as aftermarket, depends on the offset of the wheel as to what does and doesn't fit. my old 17's have more clearance from the side of the caliper than my new 18's. its the side issue thats the problem

Re: Brembo's

If they go on a classic then you need the STI wheels from an 03
