This is not a huge upgrade, looks silly and I don't like making compromises.

Therefore, I decided to go a step further - here's a 305x28 mm drilled and grooved disc fitted on. However, there's not enough space for caliper-adapters, therefore I've had to get creative with it.

The solution I went with are Renault Megane RS 225 Brembo calipers with custom-made caliper mounts (they have no mounts, unlike 406 Coupe V6 Brembo calipers with integrated mounts).

And here you go - 4-pot Brembo calipers with 305x28 mm discs (note that the caliper is test-fitted up-side down in this photo). It's a massive improvement over standard brakes!

With custom caliper mounts, I could have gone for any disc size, but I've had to stick with 305 mm setup in order to be able to fit my Winter wheels (406 Coupe Hoggars, 7x16" ET12). They fit straight on, without spacers.

Just a test to see how they fit with Compomotive MO 7x17" ET15 - these wheels also clear the calipers without the need for wheel spacers.

However, with 307 Challenger 6.5x17" ET31 wheels, a 20 mm wheel spacer is required in order for wheels to fit over the Brembo calipers.

Of course, my RS GT 7.5x18" ET15 wheels could easily house even bigger brakes with no bother.
