    Prodrive Alcon Calipers

    Anybody ever rebuilt these?
    Where would I get a kit and how much?
    Anybody fit them to a Version 2?

    You can get the rebuild kit yourself. Mate of mine done them while back
    Got new everything going from Alcon. Il ask if he still has the part numbers for you

    It's the discs that kills the price on them

    Thanks Phil. Not sure they are worth getting now.
    Would have thought there has to be a more budget friendly alternative to those discs!?! Aftermarket etc?
    Fine if you want to retain originally of a P1 but these are to be retro fitted to a V2.

    Hard braking will get that contamination off easily.

    Finally picked up a set of these. Bit of a gamble but seem in ok condition. I bought them on the premise that i would be completely rebuilding them anyway. I got a set of discs off Phil last year.
    Couple of queries on these calipers though if anybody can help.
    The guy i bought them off got them with a 01 Bug WRX he bought that the previous owner never fitted. I assume that's what the brackets are for?
    Was the Prodrive Alcon ever an option on newage cars?

    Brackets are required for any Impreza as these are radial mounted calipers. That bracket will fit classic or newage.

    Cheers Jamie any pics i have seen didn't have brackets on them so wasn't sure weather they were original or not.


    Been onto Euro M-Sport in Tyrone as they are now an Alcon agent so he is going to price rebuild parts.
