    One clue would have been that the disc rotors suited all 2CV6 vehicles form 1963-1990. Considering that the 2CV6 arrived in the late 70's but disc brakes didn't come until 1981, the exorbitent price may have referred to the changes required to modify a fleet of early ones.

    Why would you want ventilated Brembos on a 2CV in the first place. The standard ones have sufficient cooling with the ducting from the fan. The brakes are only used to stop at traffic lights and when parking the car. The rest of the time its a case of DON'T TOUCH THE BRAKES. Its taken you half an hour to get to the speed of the surrounding traffic, why on earth would you want to press the middle pedal?

    Someone made a hands up when listing, or you are buying all their stock of Deuche discs cos the accountant looked at the stock movement and told them to get rid of them?

    John if you look at the diagram they are the 7mm thick solid discs, just the pretty pic at the top is the ventilated version (generic pic) Agree with the rest of the paragraph, conserve momentum AT ALL COST

    drive as hard as you like, I did... Flat out! The 2cv is light and stops without much effort, change down a gear or two and a light touch of the brake pedal. I only had to lock up the brakes once. That was to avoid being Tboned by a tram who had run the red light. The disc brakes on the 2cv make it stop in no distance, thank goodness because the result of a tram Tboning me wouldn't be pretty.
