Drum Brakes To Disc Brakes

Recommended Posts

I currently have a ford fiesta LX 1.3 2003 plate, I am looking to replace the front brakes which are drums and i would like to replace them with disc brakes preferably vented.

What's the best way to go about it?, if you have any suggestions to kits or brakes that would be helpful.

Front should be disc?

You 100% sure the front's are drum? Car makers have not used that on the front for many many years. I'd understand if you said the back, but the front is unheard of since the 70's & 80's

Indeed, no 2003 car could have front drum brakes, this would not meet the brake requirements. my old 1995 polo had front disc and that was terrible...
