GTA, what size brake ya got??

Was just curious on a numbers basis how many people had 305mm or 350mm brakes. Mine is still on 305mm but so far has had no problem. With the 17" multispoke wheels and the fact that my car was a German import, even with a comprehensive 3rd year warranty supplied by the specialist I got the car from I don't think I will be getting the upgrade FOC.

What a dumbass, forgot to add the poll. Thats what happens when you are tired and haven't had enough coffee.

Warning Re: GTA, what size brake ya got??

Well I dont have a GTA,but I do have the 147 turbo with custom fitted GTA Brembo 4 pots and one off/custom fabricated billet alloy bells and Brembo Racing 325 x 26mm floating discs.

Lightweight but amazing braking power.Pic of the alloy bells being machined and the whole lot slapped on the car.The calipers are monted with custom fabricated brackets/spacer plates

Rear of the car has Red Dot 20 groove uprated discs with Ferodo pads and custom made braided steel brake lines on the front and rear.

Thanks,they are better than the Brembo Big Brake kit thats is made for the normal 147,the discs are bigger as Brembos kit only use 305mm discs and my brake setup works out cheaper than Brembos big brake kit.

The first brake discs were totally bad, but the new AR brake discs are pretty good.
