Our standard price to recondition them to this finish is £125 per caliper , so £500 for all 4 inc vat , these ones were probably the worst condition calipers we have ever had in , and needed a lot of machining , so were more expensive , and took longer to do.

At the moment , for a recondition , you're looking 3-4 days

Cheers Ian

Ah sorry I mixed you up with someone else , at that price 1 thread would have been repaired as well.
We had a set in recently that needed about 12 threads repairing , they were the expensive ones
Cheers Ian

I agree, they should be , it's weird that the EVO Brembo's don't have as many issues with threads as Imprezas , they are very similar calipers , but the EVO front calipers have a standard pitch thread on the fronts of 1.75mm , the Impreza have a 1.5mm pitch , the finer thread doesn't seem as strong when getting bolts out.
Both Evo and Impreza rears have a standard M10 1.5mm pitch , but we see more Impreza calipers that need rear threads doing .

They look good.


I have a question, and sorry for hijacking the thread for a moment:


A lot of people go down the AP, Ksport, D2, Cosworth... etc route when upgrading brakes, but is it possible to get the equivalent stopping power from a decent Brembo set up?


I had a set of 6 pot K sport on a blob a few years ago, and I have to say 10/10 on appearance, but the pads I chose were sh!te 5/10. Would have put it back to Brembo or tried a different pad if I had kept the car.


Robert.

I ran my old K sport 330 kit with Blue Stuff pads which didnít seem too bad, but the kits are expensive for what they are.
Having sold that and recently bought a JDM Bug STI decided to try a better disc and pad combo with the original calipers so went for DBA T3ís and PF Z compound pads together with Motul race fluid and Goodrich lines.
Have to say Iím very happy with them so far although havenít pressed on and really given them some abuse yet, but first indications certainly seems a good setup.
