REVO BBKS, FROM £2370
In the VAG world there’s only one thing that says you mean business more than a big, fat set of stoppers - and that’s a big, fat set of stoppers with Revo plastered down the side. But what makes this particular brand one of the most sought-after out there? Well, the fact of the matter is that Revo only develop products specifically for the motors they know best. And, although that means you can’t have a set of these 380 or 355mm monsters as a direct bolt-on upgrade for your Nissan Juke, if you’re rocking a VW Golf, Skoda Octavia, SEAT Leon or Audi A3/S3, you’re properly golden.
Revo say these kits have been ‘aggressively tested in a variation of conditions in both road and track scenarios’, which is the polite way of saying they’ve spent months kicking seven shades of shite out of them on all sorts of hardcore tuned machinery. Seriously, we’ve seen their sort of testing before, it’s automotive carnage at its very best! The hardware is also engineered to Revo specs by Alcon, who are one of the biggest brands in the business. Basically, they don’t come any more hardcore.
Full kits consist of some mighty monobloc six-pots, two-piece floating discs the size of small moons and suitably durable Ferodo DS performance pads. They’ll even chuck in braided lines and a bottle of Motul DOT 5.1 racing fluid to get you going. You can’t say fairer than that, can you?
Performance aside, Revo have created something that every VAG owner hankers after here, and that’s something that looks just as amazing as their posh hoops.
