Calipers folks. Not discs if you've seen my passionford thread. Those guys seem to want to run without wheels and just run directly on 20 inch brake discs.

Got MK1 Mondeo ST24 calipers for 278mm discs that are worse for wear and rather than just getting reconditioned ones: I'm thinking sporty. Something to crush those discs like it's butter. My google-fu is always useless and eGay just wants to jerk me off.

Looking for standard fitment to a Mondeo/fiesta mounting holes, at least double piston, cost effective (I do have kids!) and decent looking. Been thinking about nice green ones to match the potential strips when I put the XR2i bodykit on but if I have to paint them I don't care!

Happy hunting guys!

how big are your wheels? if 16 inch what about peugeot 406 coupe brembo 4 pots! those calipers are for 305mm discs! so can squeeze under a decent wheel and i think i recall they can pretty much fit the hub directly!

thats about it unless you go down the 4 pot route and you may have clearance issues with the st24 alloys as they anrt the best.
you cant even fit he 300mm mondeo mk3 upgrade under st alloys unless you fit 10mm spacers
