I might be able to get hold of new Brembo discs for my GS, they would be drilled, grooved and zinc plated that bolt directly on to existing setup. The price is nice at 200 quid for front and rear.

I know it's much cheaper than list price, but are the Brembos any better than standard discs? :duh:

Yes, they are. They've been used for 500 miles, but are genuine. Cheers for the advice, well they are superior to Lexus discs since they are drilled and grooved..which will help with hard braking (bloody intake sounds so nice, I'm pedal to the metal most days!)

Well, the cheapest I can get with shipping and VAT would be around 370 for the set of 4. Has anyone used Brembo, drilled and grooved on their Lexus, how much of a difference does it make? :D

I would be interested at that price in need and on the look out for new discs too!

Where are they from maneesh?

It was gonna be a private sale with a US person. Brembo discs come up for sale all the time on clublexus. In fact, I think you can get a pair for less than 90 quid from the dealers there, before shipping and VAT of course.

I'm now getting a quote from Rotora.com, who do big brake kits for Lexus. They sell the bit separately too. I've got a quote of slotted standard spec discs all round for 200 quid. I am seeing if perhaps we can do a group buy with them, as they've got a really good rep in the US. I know Mr Singh on here has fitted ROtora's big brake kit to his IS. I've fitted Rotoras stainless steel brake lines which have firmed up the pressure. Some US members have said that Brembo OEM size discs have warped..

I'm also considering Black Diamond discs as used by Yoshi on his Aristo. See here for IS200 prices

I might just upgrade the front discs and leave the rear as OEM, since the front's do most of the heavy braking.

A few ppl have got the DBA (disc brakes Austrailla) there pretty good, slotted and drilled, they are a bit more expensive tho, but have a neat colour code thing on the disc to tell you what temperature they are at.

Mine have warped but was down to my calipers sticking :(

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
