Lots of this very odd to use calliper paint later and there ready for the decals, they should arrive tomorrow, I had some curved AMG decals in black to go on.
Not a cheap set up but worth it to stop these rapid vans!

My van is the 109 so doesn't really warrant anything like this...that doesn't stop me wanting them though! how much is that little lot going to cost?

I'd love to be able to lift the back wheels with some late braking into a roundabout.

When you say calipers from eBay I'm assuming used items from a breakers yard?

Yup. He means source the callipers however you want. If you flush with money you could always buy new callipers! So all in this upgrade would be around £400!

No problem with tyres as I run 101 index on 20" extra load so more than covered.

Callipers used are around on ebay but are not cheap, around £300 each or more.
Pads again not cheap, genuine £200 a set.
Look for C63 SL55 amg etc and you will find them.

Thats cheap, there a grand each new! nothing other will fit.

There are companies that make big brake kits all new and prices start from £1500 plus vat.

If you think thats bad have a look at what the VW guys spend on the T5.

Nice Ian. What about rear ones? Same from c63 etc or need to do some mod?


Rear is a bigger job but yes it will have to be done, the problem is the hand/foot brake, I need a cross ref of the rear disc and brake shoes for a start, it disc does not get much bigger but does become vented.

Hi, found this threat from a few years ago.
I want to upgrade my Vito 122cdi.

i can source C63 calipers
they talk about 360mm discs, from what model? Because the disc offset changes...

and I need those custom brackets! Who has them? Who makes them?
