    ill put some from the front brake system to see.
    there are major mods and customizations,that look kinda dangerous :p
    the braking distance is much much smaller.especially in high speeds (more than 120kmh/h) i think its even half than the previous orignal setup with the poor brakes and the jelly suspension

    hm next improvements will be small
    on the list are repaint the brake calipers red,change tyres :p ,HID light kit,(maybe rear led lights),grounding kit,iridium spark plugs,and maybe bigger diameter in the exhaust.

    Looking great mate, what will be the next mod?

    Hello !
    Like everybody said, nice and original color (it must be hard to find canned spray in stores tho) I have a lot of questions to ask.
    What year is the car ? 2000 ?
    I also like the SRI and 1.3i badges ! Never saw them before; they were already on the car or you added them?
    Nice wheels too !
    The only thing I would remove are the diagonal facelift side bump strips.
    Does the Super S spoiler was installed when you bought the car? It's the first time I see one on a facelift model.

    Welcome to the club !

    the last pic is from the front systen and the other 2-3 are from the rear axis
    what else do you want me to tell you?:D

    the sri and the 1.3i were original ,i didnt add them!
    its the 2000 model,and since then i only have seen one more identical micra,same colour same badges.
    the spoiler was installed when i bought it.i havent added anything external
    the side strips i like them very much :wasntme:
    the only thing i dont like is the rear ride height,when i have time and money ill lower it down a bit more to be identical with the front

    he probably wants to know (like me) if they were a direct fit Konstantinos, or if you had to make custom brackets or spacers etc :grinning:

    Yes, just want to know what is needed to put those brakes (both front and rear). Some close up pics would be great. :rolleyes:

    Great Micra you have there, very impressed with what you have done with the brakes, did you fit the Fiat GT brakes yourself?
  18. kostas007

    kostas007 Well-Known Member

    i had to put spacers,also the front brake calipers have about 1mm distance from the rim!so i needed to put specific offset rims to fit.

    not me,i bought them from a friend (he is mechanic) who had them on an identical micra that used to race

    nice car. ive never seen a micra in the colour what yours is in. do them drilled groove discs make a difference?
  20. kostas007

    kostas007 Well-Known Member

    drilled are for weight reduction and better cooling.
    i couldnt manage to stress the brakes so much so they overheat...
  21. Manny

    Manny Ex. Club Member

    also suppose to be better stopping with the grooves, do they overheat now?
  22. kostas007

    kostas007 Well-Known Member

    nope.but even when they get hot,there is no performance reduction

    did you mean they was overheating before? i not too sure about the above post?
  25. kostas007

    kostas007 Well-Known Member

    the default brakes were crap.
    the rear drums almost didnt brake at all,and the front brakes were struggling to stop the car,especially if there were more than the driver inside...
    and after 1-2 hard stops they were very hot..

    really nice job man! im eventually going to get round to fitting my grooved /drilled /vented discs and better calipers after a close call with a fool in a 4x4 yesterday. But still cars lookin nice and the HUGE discs really look mean. :D
