    Default Honda City 08 Braking

    Salam. Guys i have some questions regarding the brakes of Honda City IDSI 08.

    1. Can they be upgraded to 4 wheel discs or ABS as we have in new City 09 ?
    2. Currently i have 2 wheel brakes which i just dont like, so how can i upgrade them?
    3. Can the discs be fitted on rear tyres without changing anything else?

    P.S : Im using 185,55,14 Michelin tyres, they are too hard i dont know why..

    Yes but its not easy; a lot of modification / work required

    Maybe its time to get new tyres.use softer tyres with correct tyre pressure. Do also get rear drums serviced n checked

    I agree with hash4u and Omar. Your tyres have gone hard. First of replace them wisely. Get your suspension and alignment/balancing checked. Honestly, the upgrade you intend doing is a big challenge and may not be worth it. The model of your car is a front-heavy vehicle. A lot of research, experience, patience and dough is required. And the resale WILL be affected too.

    I once heard a Honda mechanic mentioning the price of repair, if the ABS failed on an ES1 Civic (it also has EBD). He quoted it as 100k. From that, you can deduce the price of swapping 4 wheel disc brakes with ABS, EBD, and the required software changes to the ECU. Don't forget about the master brake cylinder, brake lining, and other related hardware.
