    ok,
    i have a 2012 ve ss (povity pack) that i have already upgraded the front brakes to 355mm 4 spot brembos (redline G8) and they work fine.
    I have the opportunity to upgrade the rear to hsv ap 4 spot 2nd hand.
    so is there any problem with mixing the two different makes of calipers?
    will there be a need to change anything other than the calipers, rotors, bolts and maybe rear brake lines?
    i have read i need to trim the rear dust covers.
    my real concern is will i have any issues with abs/esp or brake bias?

    the only thing I can think of is you may end up with the braking bias to the rear which is never a good idea, however I'd like to think ESP and ABS could sort you out.

    it would be very similar to the HSV setup, only difference being the HSV front rotors are 365mm, not 355mm.
