    Default Brembo discs

    Who sells Brembo discs in Aus? Pref Sydney. BSM don't do the "OEM" ones, and I can't seem to find a huge amount. A couple of places I tried, none replied my inquiery email.

    I know a mate who got his from IBS Brakes:

    http://www.indbrake.com.au/display.htm

    As far as I know they are the main distributor of Brembo products in Aus...

    I havn't dealt with them myself though. I may be soon.

    I made some enquiries in anticipation of my front discs needing replacing and I couldn't find anyone in Oz who does them. I might try this IBS place then.

    They are $500 landed from Demon Tweeks for the slotted brembos (front only).

    For the rears just get the stock ones (they need bearings pressed in and brembo don't make them anyway).

    Yeah I was thinking just the fronts as well. You don't really use the rear for that much braking anyways. 500, is that just the OEM ones? well Brembo but considered OEM? Thanks n b j, I'll give them a try as well!

    Have you thought about Disc Brakes Australia?

    www.dba.com.au

    I don't have a financial interest, just know the guys and think they do a decent job. They manufacture in Sydney.

    Alternatively, a Canberra supplier of Brembo is:

    www.bsmsport.com.au

    Good luck.

    Ever considered putting the front brakes onto the rear if you do get some
    four or six pot Bembos and bigger rotors?

    The fronts are two pots and the rotor is vented whereas the backs
    are solid and a single pot caliper. I'd do it, as it'd give you massive
    brakes all round and the rears wouldn't need to work as hard to keep up
    with the greatly improved fronts.

    Cheers,

    I think only downside for that is cost. For the front to go to 4 or even 6 (no need really for this car), the wheel would have to be upgraded to accmondate them. New wheels, new tyres, calipers etc etc is going to be costly, and I'm not really looking for vast braking performance from what I have at the moment.

    Just a little bit is enough, well working against a budget, this is the best option I think particularly if you want to keep the car as stock looking as possible.

    I've seen a Brembo kit for the Clio that provides a bigger rotor and a
    four pot caliper that fits the existing 16" rim. Can't remember where I
    saw it but it was recent.

    ahhh yes, but mine's a 172. And for what ever reason, the Australian 172s came with 15" rather than 16" wheels. I beilieve the rotor etc size are unchanged. Just the rim...

    depends on so many thing, whether they are 2 pot or 4 pot or even up to 6 pot. Rotors vary so much in cost from size to material, to whether they are ventilated or not, slotted or cross drilled and the style of slots or ventilation, etc.

    And then depending on where you get them from and installed too.

    can vary from a couple of hundred $ up to a few thosand $...

    Brembo do make brakes that fit the Clio. I remember now seeing the kits
    advertised in a UK magazine with options to fit 16 & 17" rims with various
    size rotors and calipers.

    Search the net, I'm sure you'll find a UK or Euro supplier.

    yeah still searching for a price at the moment. They do as far as I know. I am as previously said only after an OEM replacement. It will still be drilled and what have you.

    I've just ordered a set of Eibach Sportlines from the UK.

    Yozza sport they call themselves. They are on cliosport.net as well as OZRS. I had a look around, most places didn't ship out side of UK. I emailed him, and the deal was done. I think shipping came to 80 dollars or something similar. still more than 100 bucks under the cheapest quotes locally though...
