Custom brakes?

Post by geniusloci » Fri Oct 11, 2019 4:28 pm

Since the F-Pace SVR and the new Velar SVA obviously have much, much better brakes (huge calipers on 395mm discs) - has anyone found a way to retrofit a high performance set on the Velar?

I know of the AP Racing kit (there s a user that upgraded his front brakes on the F-Pace with it), but I hope JLR did't go to the extent of engineering a completely new solution for the F-Pace and the Velar when they have performance brakes on the RR Sport and Range Rover (at least two types, regular TRW and Brembo for the upgraded brakes).

Or may be it's something totally specific an used only on these two vehicles? Does anyone know where I can see the parts for the Jag SVR or the Velar SVA (if it's not too early for the Velar)?

And yeah, I do hate the brakes, no grip, soft yet locking at the end... Plus everything rusts as if nobody bothered coating it.
Idk, may be I've expected much more.

You are very right about the rusting all around the edges of the brake discs...!
Wifey drives a Q3, and I don't see a single spec of rust on the brake discs!

Mine see to rust faster than you can remove the rust. The Mazda6 I had before sat outside in the mud a whole winter and apart from minor rusty sheen on the disc surface, nothing changed.
