6 Pot Brembo Modification.

Hi everyone,

I know that this has been done to death on the D3, but I could find very little information on anyone making this mod on a D4.
So for all that are thinking of doing this modifcation, I have uploaded some photos and a list of all the bits I used to do the job and for all that are thinking is it worth it, “then the answer is a defendant YES”
I always thought my V8 Range Rover Sport had great brakes, but always though that the Disco brakes were always left lacking of any real feel, bite, or progression while braking……. I’m happy to say that this has all been corrected with the 6 pot Brembo’s and they now give me so much more confidence under any braking conditions.

380mm discs and dust shields from 09-13 5.0 SC RRS
6 Pot Brembo callipers from RRS 09-16
Delphi pads.
And last of all 5mm wheel spacers. I have spayed them the same colour as the discs and once in place you would not know that it was running with spacers. They just look like they are part of the disc. Just a foot note, I think that I could of gotten away with a 3mm spacer, but with the 5mm the clearance is great and 5mm is negligible. I wanted to retain my current rims as they are unique to the XXV and so had no choice other than to run with spacers.
I hope that this inspires anyone thinking of doing the job, or who is worried that the parts won't fit.

LR013665 RH Brake disc splash shield.
LR013666 LH Brake disc splash shield.
LR020362 1 Pair of brake pads.

Hi PDC,

Did you make the 5mm spacers or can you buy these?

Cheers
