Howdy, I searched through old posts and found some recommendations for fitting a Brembo caliper, and would just like to confirm exactly which one it is; P34?

Is it a direct replacement? Is it that much better? In the old threads from 2013 they were saying it would be good as spares dwindle, but currently I can find tons of pads that fit the OEM caliper, so is it really worth the £150?

Hmm, based on this page (https://www.steadygarage.com/store/raci ... ke-caliper) I think the P32 and P34 are the same mounts, only differ in the angle of the banjo/bleed holes.

Is it really a worthy upgrade, as these rear calipers are all a very simple 2 piston design?

Any brake disc recommendations while I'm at it?
