Later brake calipers on early model
on: 16 Aug 17, 07:41:03
Evening folks,

Does anyone know if the later calipers from the 13 - 16 models will fit the 11 model without modification?

Thanks in advance.

Didn't think they were any different, are you sure they are? If so what is the difference?

Hi Mike,

When you read the reviews between the different models they say the front brakes were upgraded from Mk1 > Mk2 and as a result the calipers do look different in that they have a flatter appearance - think there still 4 pot but assuming the upgrade came from the calipers and not other parts of the system i.e. the master cylinder  :027:

See what you mean Foxy, quite different. Had a quick look at partslist and pretty sure no change in master cylinder so think you are right.

The 2016 models on went to a monoblock design.

As to whether they would fit an earlier version??????????

They will fit. I just put on a set of Tokico monoblocks from a 2017 on my 2013.
