superleggeras will look good.

i think you will lose performance though.

i dont know if there will be that much difference with bigger brakes though.

with the G60 Conversion, i take thats the one your going for? the standard calipers are still used, so your not really gona be changing the power of the brakes in any way.

Bigger discs, just gotta find the carriers! Which are a nightmare to find.

then you'll need bigger pads too, like dan said if the piston hasnt got the force potential, you wont see a difference the bigger pads will just make the piston have to work harder, then you'll be pushing harder on the pedal

i believe you need G60 Carriers and discs. the calipers are exactly the same.

i cant remember if you need to change the pads. but gotta feeling you need g60 or ibiza cupra ones.

ibiza cupra brakes are the same btw!

its a weird brake conversion jony, not like the ford conversions where you change everything like

Just ordered Grooved discs and some OMP Fast road pads, maybe they'll be a improvement over my current warped discs and shitty ebc greenstuff lol!

Quite shocked how big the brakes are 256mm Yo!

need new brakes myself as mine feel warped when abit of heat is in them.

do grooved discs eat pads or are they pretty much the same as standard?

Showoff! ;) lol

Our cars probably weigh 100kgs less than a focus though so we dont need huge brakes

Dont think it makes much difference lou
