    C70 Mk1 replacement front caliper

    Had my C70 given a full service including software update at the local Main dealer in..
    Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch.

    Was given an advisory front OS caliper needs replacing. Any recommendations as to where to obtain a standard caliper:
    #1 From a good a breaker's yard, via the net,
    #2 Reconditioned OEM
    #3 After market new unit

    I've looked at PFS, and casparts4less and ebay.

    I'm not looking to upgrade just standard, leastwise for this year.

    I am in the process of swapping mine off for a BBK so you can have them for 30 quid & I will include the goodridge lines.

    Thanks for the offer Dave sounds good, are the disks OK?
    Can you PM me with your phone number and post code. The front off-side beginning to squeal as the disk heats up. So need to inspect, if I can fettle that for now, I might try coming over the rim peaks are white so may need to find the survival kit. How far over the boarder are you?

    Telford. I have anti squeal shims that you can fit and the DS2500 pads have loads of wear left.
