Yeah, half of it for the disc rotor.

Which Nissan 4 pots? New/used and how big? I don't know which one can put to my car though. I also do not want to upsize since I still want to be able to use the std 16' rims, that's why I just look for replacement stuff. If want to upsize, most suggested to get the Lexus GS300 4 pot kit which is plug and play but also expensive (maybe up to rm3k).

silvia or r32/r33 4pots used can be bought for ard rm400-500 and can be fitted under 16" wheels... kcng used to have it in his ex-neo under 16".

the r32 4pot is the same caliper that SSWorks uses for their brake kit but paired with 282mm rotor and this combo fits nicely under 15" depending on offset and spoke design.

Hmm are those prices just the calipers without the rotors or complete with rotors? Anyway I'm not really confident with used stuff and prefer new. Thx for the info though, will keep that in mind.

Haha, it's ok. I'm not easily upset la, in fact I'm glad if people can share openly here, which will be useful for future references. I also know I might be a bit too hasty and if I'm a bit more patient to spend more time researching stuff I could probably save several hundreds. But I really need to fix my brakes quickly as the rear was almost completely gone. So as long as it's within my predicted budget, I'm still ok to spend.

Ic, at least I got the steel braided hose and relatively good pads (I think). :biggrin:
Initially I also thought about upgrading to 4 pot calipers but then not sure which one suitable without upgrading the size and where can do it with less hassle.
Yeah different cars can result in vastly different prices.

aiyo, you're not comparing apple with apple. Right now you're comparing an apple with a watermelon la. Everything for the MarkX will easily be 2x or 3x more expensive than the national car la. Even the brake pad is 2x the price of your national car la.

With 2k I can already buy a used BOT set. That would probably only pay for his manifold only.

True words.

What type of brakes does the MarkX has? Single pot of double?

However, the bulk of the budget went to the Project Mu rotors and they are at the same price across the range, be it for Toyota or Proton. I'm curious if they are worth double the asking price of regular Brembo's rotor. OP, any updates? :biggrin:

Ic, that's a good price then. How much is usually the cost to modify and refurbished a used set like that? Cause I'm not really confident yet using used stuff for brakes, especially with the calipers.

Normal single pot only.

I've asked for Brembo one actually but at that time the seller said not available. But I think it should be available cause now I know the rotor is actually the same as Camry, Aphard, and Estima. I think Brembo one should be good enough already if got slotted ones. There's another brand called Shoji from Japan, less than half the price of Project Mu, but I don't know how it looks. Then there's a brand called Jun also Japan, but price only slightly below Project Mu.

My VR front rotors are Shoji brand. cost only RM240.......:biggrin:
That's cheap, where did you get it? I was also offered that one but price almost double yours!
Is it normal rotor or slotted/crossdrilled ones?
