Default Brembo Calipers

Hi,
Is there an adaptor available to fit Brembo 4 pot calipers from a Fiat Coupe/Peugeot 406 Coupe to the front of a Ti?
I seem to remember reading about this somewhere but can remember exact details!
Thanks, Owen.

Not that I know, but there are adapters for 996 porsche 4 pot brembo calipers, I think e36 m3 guys use it. If you find something let us know!

There are adapters for the 996 Brembo/Porsche calipers to fit E36 M and non M. I carry them.

I don't know which calipers the Fiat uses so I'm not sure if an adapter exists but if it does not you are better off going with an already sorted solution. It's not as simple as making a bracket to fit. You need a rotor that's the right diameter, width and bolt pattern. Also know that virtually every OE wheel needs spacers to clear 4 piston calipers.

But the bigger question, what are you doing with the car that requires more brake?

Vented stock 4/98 on front brakes are just fine for the power that engine makes. Unless you're running 200 treadwear tires and track pads and running the car on the track, adding Brembos looks cool but is unnecessary.

x2

Or if he really wants going 300mm all around (my hopeful setup!) or e46 330 front 325mm setups would be enough without knowing application of the swapped 318ti

May get an adaptor made, ive got all the parts to mock it up off the car, just have to work out the disc size & spacing for the wheel.
If I do get the calipers working I will of course share the info on here!

For me the 996 brembo calipers with massive 325 o 345mm discs are just too big.

Any option for smaller 300mm discs to run 4pot calipers? For e30 there are much smaller kits, would like to keep 15" or 16" wheels.

Getting something to fit with 16" wheels would be ideal
