Porsche Brakes on your Mini?

More information


Porsche uses Brembo's monoblock calipers on all its models for a good reason - their light weight and reliable stopping power can properly handle all the forces seen on the racetrack and roads.

The Mini is an excellent handling car, but take one on a race track and you'll soon find its original brake set-up is a major weakness.

We wanted something cheap and hassle-free for our own cars, so we designed our own set-up around the excellent (and cheap!) Porsche 986 Brembo calipers and the large 316mm discs from the R56 John Cooper Works - delivering a true performance brake package at a price we can all afford.

What's included?

Made from high tensile steel, CNC Machined to within 0.05mm tolerance.

Black zinc electroplated to prevent corrosion.

What else will I need?

The Calipers

Buy yourself some Porsche Boxster or Cayman front calipers (the non-s versions). These are commonly found on the 2.5 and 2.7 litre models of 986 and 987. You'll also need to source some brake pads from your favourite brand to match.

We've partnered up with Douglas Valley Porsche specialists, who have stock of quality tested used calipers at a discounted price of £325/pair. Call 01257 472866 and speak to Steve!

Brake Discs (rotors)

Pick up a pair of 316mm R56 JCW uprated front discs (late 2007 to 2010). These are fairly cheap off-the-shelf items at Eurocarparts etc. Many companies do upgraded versions in this size, so the choice is yours.

BMW part numbers 34116855781 or 34116855782

Brake Hoses

* Anything Else?

When using OEM wheels, wheel spacers are often required to give clearance between the calipers and the spokes.
