    Hey guys I see the norm on this site for brake upgrades are the brembo junior gt kit.
    But for around the same money I can get a set of 6-pot xyz brakes with 330mm 2-piece discs.

    Heres a pic of the brakes what you think?

    Or the other option is Comp brakes and they also do a 6 pot kit with 330mm discs as well.

    Look here: http://compbrake.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?products_id=3632

    I personally think 6 pots is overkill on a road car, Brembo junior GT kit is tried and tested, but has become an expensive option of late due to poor exchange rates, I paid £750 for mine fitted back in the day, now it's £1k+vat!

    If you do go for one of the other options you suggested, pics and reviews please. :)

    I think you are tied into their pads with those 6 pots..... tbh you would be better off with something that you can get decent pads for as this will make more difference to your braking than those calipers tbh..

    From their site mate. My tuner I used when I had my evo sells them in N. Ireland. They have a good few customer cars with them which include type r civics, high powered evo's and skylines and they all find them excellent.

    Here is the main site for the XYZ products: http://www.xyz-racing.com/index.php
