Hi Turbo Jordo, sounds like you've got the wrong disks ... maybe ones from a 1.4 or 1.6 Clio.
If your wanting to uprate them, try and get calipers from the car the disks were intended for, but watch out ... you may need to rebalance them and change the master cylinder and rear bias/balance limiter as well, otherwise you may get problems ....
If you looking to uprate in general then have a look at the TAR*OX kits, they are usually "replacement" and uprates without upsetting the cars characteristics, beware they are not cheap.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
