Bremsen, the discs on the Mini are definitely 330 mm. The car is a 2002 on a 52 plate tho. They were fitted by tuning company West Tuning, usually tune BMW,Mercs, Porsches. I foned him at first, and he said ONLY Brembo pads were available for those calipers, which is not what we wanted. Would there be a part number on the back of the caliper you can refer to against the Brembo GT kits?

found this site: http://www.rallyroad.net/ which looks to provide the brackets fairly cheaply to carry out a conversion (to either Z06 calipers or Porsche 996).
Is cheap something that should be the priority when it comes to upgrading your brakes?? Nothing is as safety critical as brakes on your car (with the possible exception of tyres) and spending as little as possible on them is probably not the way to go!
not sure exactly what angle you're trying to work.. maybe it's just you'd prefer people/members to buy direct from you at far higher prices (for essentially the same kit!) by trying to strike fear into them that the items linked to are somehow inferior..
it doesn't really reflect well when vendors start trying to attack other companies products IMHO.. but then again - what would I know..
I am not trying to scare anyone with my previous comments and i doubt very much i could scare anyone into buying a brake kit!? I am not sure what angle you are working? As a user of this forum surely it is beter to support registered forum vendors such as ourselves, rather than a company who have nothing to do with it?
Simply taking a caliper from another vehicle and bolting it onto your car is not the same thing as buying an extensively tested and developed kit specifically designed for that application.
you make it sound like Brembo have unique calipers for every car? - this isn't the case at all -they have several calipers which are suitable for various cars and all that really changes is the mounting hardware/brackets.Originally Posted by Bremsen Technik UK;/\ if you're talking about the fronts locking up then this is something the can be addressed by adding a bias/proportioning valve.. is it not??Originally Posted by Bremsen Technik UK;That has to be one of the most idiotic statements I've read on here.. so in essence what you're saying/implying is that any members on here who want brakes - should only come to yourselves??..Originally Posted by Bremsen Technik UK;/\ I disagree with that as well - there's enough people running Brembo conversion from the 8 series on here to disprove that point as well.. in addition to the members on the US board who have the ZO6 and 996 conversion who track there cars EXTENSIVELY and have had not reported issues.. maybe you have some other anecdotal evidence you'd like to share to disprove this though..Originally Posted by Bremsen Technik UK;
