Funny was thinking the same thing Vet!

Looks good though, I have a new set of OEM brembos ready to go on mine... although haven't used it much at all in the last 4 months so may go a bit longer.

Don’t these cars seem to have tiny discs compared to the size of the wheel?

Yeah unreal that a 2 tonne vehicle has 300mm discs and 302mm on the backs.

All down to the pistons and pressure of the pads

Nice job on the brake pads might let you do mine if you’re passing, will have to get a dust sheet for Monoblock though .... can’t be giving wd40 a bad name now😂😂😂

Ha ha, I think im a seasoned professional now with brake discs and pads. It took me about 3 hours all into do the evoque because everything decided to be extremely tight so that's why some much WD40 was needed.

Do the discs increase in diameter as the engine size/bhp increases on the Evoque? I assume they do.

The P330e has 349mm on the front and 325mm on the rear

I know that the the 2.2td has 300mm fronts and 302mm rears. I think the only bigger ones are the petrol models which get 325mm fronts. Still not a big upgrade for the size and weight of the vehicle.

The question is how big to they need to be these days, my wife’s car is a 6L V12 and I’m sure her fronts are only 355 or 365 dia...they’re ruddy expensive I know that!

My 5.7L Hemi only had 330mm dia and that was way over 2t and 5m long....it did take almost a week to come to a standstill tho.

Caliper piston power and pad material must be a big factor in braking power and not just the disc.

Those discs don’t look like they’ve been used yet...either you coast all day long or forget to brake...or both 👍✊👌

They've been in the car since I got it 2 years ago but I've only done about 5500 miles . No idea when they went on though. I use engine breaking a lot so I'm not hard on brakes😀
