KSport 8 Pot calipers, with 356mm x 32mm rotors... the phone in the pic is a K800i...



And inside the 17" wheel - there is about 3-4mm clearance - just enough room for the balance weights grin



Ive also got 330mm rears which use a Vectra twin pot caliper - should stop quite well grin

More pics.

Got a call from Apex to test fit them as they had altered the brackets slightly. Everything is just finger tight, and the hydraulics arent connected up. Will get round to fitting them over the next couple of weeks when I can do the rears, master cylinder and fluid change all in one go smile

Standard and new...



Fitted..



Wheel on...



Caliper to wheel clearance - about 3-4mm grin

Apex Web site..

Ive known Bren for about 10 years now - when he was selling Ford stuff before the Nissans took off.

We came to a nice arrangement where he did me a good deal on some stoppers (To which Ive been sworn to secrecy) and I put some Apex / KSport stickers on the car smile

Its a Silvia matey - it was an option when new, and hasnt got any ABS wink

Does your car even have brakes matey - I belive the car must actually move for them to function wink
