Update:

FRONT:
full caprisport upgraded brake package,
brembo progressive alloy 4-pot calipers with 315mm cross drilled and vented discs.

REAR:
275mm vented cross drilled cossie discs with vented granada callipers,

I watched the guys at Caprisport the day the car went over for this conversion,
and the time and dedication they put into fitting and making sure each component is within its tolerences was amazing,
i would of done half the things they did, this is why im no brake expert and they are...
I was glad i got them to do the brakes as i now know it is done proper and fook me they stop well now.
brakes can be viewed here:
