Post Winter upgrades
I'm getting together a few bits for some winter upgrades to the car. The current Metro 4 pots have got some sheered bleed nipples and i'm sure there is air in the system. I spotted these KAD alloy 4 pots for sale and purchased them

My current setup if I remember correctly is using the Metro upright and drive flange but using the Metro 4 pots that run the solid discs. I know I could removed the spacers from the new callipers but i'm going to change to vented ones as the discs could do with replacing, do I need to change the drive flanges as well?

This is the existing set up

The drive flanges will be fine, they tended to be swapped when they didn't fit mini alloy wheels. However as they work with your current wheels you should have no issues.
