I have a 54 plate JCW. I've had it about 6 months and the front brakes have seen better days! One of the calipers appears to be binding too so I need to get them checked out but whilst they're apart I figured I might aswell replace the pads and discs as they're all but shot.
Now I *think* it has the JCW brake upgrade. It has Red calipers with Works stickers on them, but they aren't Brembos. They're just 2 pot calipers with Works on them. They could even be painted standard S calipers with stickers on for all I know!
The only thing making me think otherwise is there is a sticker on the inside of the B Pillar saying something along the lines of "Works brake upgrade. Replace with Works parts".
SO - My question is, what parts do I need to replace them with? Are there part numbers for these? Or are they actually just standard S parts?
