If anyone is after a cheap brake upgrade over standard and can't justify or afford Brembo's, but would like better brakes. then this may be the solution for you
What you need:
Facelift hubs
Mitsubishi 380 calipers, rotors, brake hose and pads
they are the same diameter rotor but are thicker, and pads have a lot more surface area to help with heat so they don't fade as quickly
have attached some photos of the comparison on the bench and what they look like behind an 18" wheel

Is this just for the front or also the back?
Also what's the chances it'll fit behind a 16" rim?

Also if the disks are the same width do you need to replace them with 380 disks or could you re use facelife disks?

Cause i just bought new disks last month haha
Would be a neat little upgrade if so and fits 16" rim <3
