Escort Mk6 Cheap Brake Upgrade?

3 posts in this topic

I've got 2 mk6 escorts, a gti and a 1.8 tddi, both have had some tweaks & mods done and run a bit quicker than standard, so I'm thinking it might be a good idea to get some better brakes on there before I do any more to them

Is there a cheapish way way to do this, like maybe using discs and pads meant for another car?

I know some 2.0 mondeo parts a direct fit onto the mk6 escorts and each gives some improvement or other, I'm wondering if the same applies brake discs'n pads

You can use a lot of Mk3 Mondeo stuff.

Cheers for that vinny

I have the standard 15 inch wheels on both cars though, the diesel has a set of wolfrace which I got cheap and spent much time and not an insignficant amount of money on paint etc to refurb, the gti wheels I I stripped the paint off and polished them to a mirror finish then lacquered, again, hours and hours of work!

So I think for now a brake upgrade will have to wait, at least until I make the effort to find some bigger wheels and spend the time effort'n money refurbing those

Anyone wanna buy a nice newly & professionally painted set of 15 inch wolfrace? ;)
