i have seen in other threads that owners of escossies in germany change the brakes to porsche calipers. what is needed to do this is it a readily availible retro fit or is it only availible in germany. i live in australia and we have a lot of porsche parts here so it may be cost effective for me to do that?
thanks.

Slowly, but there is an evolution

new front brake:



Spec: Porsche GT3/Turbo 4 pod saddles, EBC Yellow Stuff Pads, Porsche biTurbo Discs 322 x 32 with new cnc machined bells

new Front Diff with new driveshafts will be mounted soonest.

A bigger oil pan from R and B Motorsport comes to the round!! (cheers Mike) I also got his old breather system.

After that the car should be a RING-fit and I am looking forward to the new season coming along....
