If it were me I'd stick with the MX5 calipers an just fit decent discs (EBC grooved and dimpled is my preference as cross-drilling can lead to cracking) and some decent pads.

No, not just you. The Attach Picture option doesn't work. The few on this post that are blue attachment hyperlinks (posts 3, 4 & 7) will work if you click on them but the rest don't.

Cheers Dan but its not what I'm really after as I'm trying to avoid having anything poking out of the front valance, hence why I'm looking at bolting in to the subframe using captive nuts.

I think as far as off the shelf ratios/boxes go, the Diesel Vauxhall boxes seem to be ok.
