done!
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.

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 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?

yes
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

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
