Junkyard S brake swap completed!

I managed to score a lightly used set of pads, rotors and caliper brackets for free from a friend who upgraded to a JCW set so I went for it!

All you need are the brackets from an S. The calipers are the same part number.

Slightly larger rotor

Before

After


It doesn't look like much and truly I guess it's only a half inch or so of rotor but it seems to make a difference. Anyway, that's what I did with my cooper today!

More braking power is always good. Did Blue Ridge Parkway Tour a couple of weeks back. In our group that did some off-BRP runs was a Justa. On the curves that car handled really great. Curves really equalize cars.
