Does anyone know if the thicker front rotors and 2-pot calipers from a series 2 or 3 AU 6 can be fitted to a series 1? The brakes in my wife's series 3 leave mine for dead!

Regards,
Tony.

Yeah. I found out a while ago that the std brakes are surprisingly poor at (ahem) "typical overtaking speeds"...

A bit more than I wanted to do. I was hoping it was as simple as rotors calipers and pads from a wrecker. I'll probably see Hightek about some Series 1 DBA4000 rotors and Ultimate pads next time I have to change pads (which probably won't be long!).

Hopefully that'll be enough to keep the engineer happy when I get the turbo...
