Other than specific fit calipers like Stoptech etc, has any body used calipers from other cars and got them to work?
I've read of people using DC5 Brembos with S2000 discs, but are there any others in this vain?
I've seen a few people using Porsche calipers on the VW forums, which seem to be cheaper (£200 ish), so can we use any one else's brakes (without too much modification)?

I've been keeping an eye on the DC5 calipers coming and going on eBay, definately a modification which I'll be considering this year. Brakes for me are merely an aesthetic upgrade to be honest, I'm no track fiend so spending more than a few hundred seems painful to me!

I shall keep an eye on this thread :)

I'm guessing you don't know what size discs you need until you've made a relocation plate. Then once the calipers is in position, you can measure/calculate what diameter disc to use.
