Which is why I want better.
The coversion was good, but the weak point was using the old standard calipers which aren't brilliant and don't age well. The brake distribution, even between the 2 pads on the same caliper is crap. This is a downside of single pot calipers.

I am interested in fitting 280s to my car (old 1.8i) - is there any way to improve the 'slide-ability' of the existing caliper?
