you can fix the discs at the rear but need some work to be done for your handbrake.

Question

Hey, can you do this easily on any car? Or will it prove to be very costly? Was thinking of putting them on the back of my Honda... Iceman, I've seen your car brake from a ditance(other side of the road ) quite quickly. What setup and brakes do you have??

you need to buy the front set of rotors and brake assembly which you can get in the gujri for 6-10k then you need to spend around 4 to 5k on its fitting which dom can do.
my car has good braking??? thats news to me too i find it a little sluggish compared to teh honda...love the way hjonda stops.

The Honda does, but never having driven your car, I wouldn't know really... hehe... it did loook pretty neat when your car braked tho...
would ddom also be able to source a good set of brakes, or would I have to do that seperately? cause I'd prefer it if I knew that the brakes were of good quality an all...

yeah you can come to dom or me any time. it will all be taken care of and given to you in proper working condition.
give me a call some time and you can check the baleno out.
i use my gears as well while braking gives me a better control...at teh cost of my clutch..but am runnign a performance clutch so it kinda covers it.
