AP Racing have developed a ‘Formula’ Big Brake Conversion Kit to fit the new BMW mini.
Mini front brake kit uses 4 x 24mm 40 vane discs with drilled faces and 4 piston alloy road spec calipers. The calipers feature dirt seals, pad anti rattle clip and an anti corrosion finish to make them suitable for the day to day rigours of road use.
The brake conversion will require aftermarket rims to enable clearance of the wider brake set up. The wheels listed below are a selection of those known to be suitable – AP Racing can provide caliper profile templates to enable alternative wheels to be checked for clearance.
