    Silly Q but i take it the both fit with out major mods? if so whats the advantages/disadvantages of each in your eyes?

    as we are running 263's at the mo as standard?

    also whats the wear like on these? as i will need a new set for my 12 month service (well pads but disks might a swell go!!)

    If someone with an R can measure the available gap between caliper and wheel that would help on choice and max size.
    Price may be a decider depending on what peeps want. Bigger is more leverage and stopping power with slight increased heat dissipation potential.

    Wear wise would'nt /should'nt be any worse, possibly better if it runs cooler. Very much dependant on pad choice and abuse/work-load

    Mine on the Ibiza have lasted very well so far for most of last year, where previously I would consume 3-4sets (yes that many!)

    The LCR runs floating brakes so this means they can move in and out a bit so increasing the distance between the hub and caliper would make this effect greater? As long a sthere no chance of hitting the Alloys due to this and the could be put back of necassary i would go for the larger ones as bigger is better!

    The LCR does'nt run floating anything m8... Dunno where you heard that one.
    One piece disks on LCR.. Fixed calipers (not floating like Leon Cupra's for example)

    regards

    Iwas talking to a couple of the LCR fellas on the A&M group fit at the weekend and there was a mini with huge 2 piece kit there and the fact the LCR has floating didsk was mentioned.

    If it hasnt i stand corrected, anyehere i could check this tho as someone is wrong!

    You can look at the disc to see if it is a seperate bell and rotor

    I would say there is 2-3cm worth of space to play with disk wise. To be honest is the 325 going to be a worthwhile upgrade ??? Assume it would be grooved or drilled too ??

    can you get a really bigger conversion for the LCR to go behind 19" wheels ? 360 mm or something like that, i think you wont really notice much with a 3 - 7 mm increase

    A 2-piece AP Racing disc offers significant advantages over the stock one piece disc, regardless of size.

    Weight reduction, heat dissipation, resistance to warping and so on.

    Its more a case of what available as std... 323 are'nt 325 are and 330 are next step. Go much larger diameter and disks start to go 32mm thick which is too much for the brembo caliper.

    2-piece disks are a significant upgrade in braking and cooling terms. LCR's work their brakes very hard... fast car and heavy car = very hot brakes and high pad wear

    355mm x 28mm disks listed. :-o

    You sure there's 20-30mm between caliper and wheel rim on the ID of the wheel?
