will these brakes fit under 13" wheels?
does it change the wheel position/offset by much?
and do the struts require any modifications (drilling mountings etc) to fit?
i'm very interested, cheers Andy

Hello Andy,
Yes they fit in 13" wheels as they were on my 2.8i with pepperpots.
No i did not have to drill out the strut mountings holes, the bolts went through ok.

Sorry, the offset changes about 10mm wider.

Sorry, senior moment, the bolts for the caliper bracket use the existing holes on the struts to fix to.
