I saw a photo of an Esprit with a 6-pot caliper PNM brake upgrade, which looked, well, very pretty. Has anyone here fitted brake upgrades?

I have an early S4 which was fitted with the bendix brakes front and rear. They had to go, I now have the Hispec 4 pot all round and they are great. I am running under pressure at the moment as the pressure switch on the brake pump is tired. Once Dodge has sorted out his replacement switch I'm expecting great things.

I got an AP disc and 4 pot caliper upgrade years ago which I race with, pretty much transformed the car and only 295 mm. I once put Ferodo DS3000 pads in and the braking was enormous! Ate the discs though...

 

Calipers are small CP5001 but effective. Just changed the pads in the rear, too much hassle changing the rest.
