17" brake discs

Post by Rob Wright » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:50 pm

While searching for a Xe, I've come across a lot of adverts that state the cars have been fitted with 17" brake discs. Surely this is wrong, and the upgrade size is approx 14"?

Did a search, but couldn't find this topic before :D

The "upgrade" brakes were 350mm which is near enough 14".
Although looking at the configurator they don't seem to be an option anymore on any variant and even the standard spec list doesn't mention them (pretty sure they are standard on the 300 Sport as they were on the S) which is strange.

Correct Phil, 350mm is standard on the front of the 300, with the standard across the range rear discs.
