156 rear disc size ???

This is just for my curiosity...or I have wonky eyes....

Parked beside a 156 2litre Selespeed today. What I noticed was that the rear discs on the Selespeed were way smaller than the rear discs on my 2litre 16v. Both cars are 1999 vintage.

Are there different sizes of rear discs, or did my eyes tell me porkys ???

Re: 156 rear disc size ???

If they were both 1999 cars then they were the same (251mm).
Some of the later cars (from 2002 model year) have 276mm rear discs.

The discs on the Sele were defo smaller. The "face" was smaller and it had a different caliper and presumably pads to my car.

'usually' the smaller disc has a 'ribbed' caliper the later larger ones are smooth.
