    On Euro car parts website there are 260mm and 282mm rear discs available, im guessing the larger discs are for the Tourer model.

    For my model the 2005 2.0 Sport there's the option of 280mm and 300mm fronts and I have no idea which is the correct fitment, I have 17 inch wheels if that helps?

    First of all mate you should believe anything on that website they have no clue on Japanese car the first name of the firm basically tell you they deal in Eurotrash :Smile:

    Now coming to your question

    On the 7th Generation CM1 CL7 cars had 280mm front disc.
    On the 7th Generation CL9, CM2, CN1, CN2 had 300mm front disc.

    I would buy OEM discs as non OEM disc are personally a waste of time. :Hey:

    Yes I intend on getting OEM, I have used Pagid discs before with BMW's in the past as they were one of thier OEM suppliers.

    The reason I was unsure about the front disc size is that I had heard the CL7 2.0 Sport (17inch wheels) might have come with 300mm fronts and the smaller 16inch wheel equipped Sport and SE came with 280mm fronts. I know the CL9 2.4 Executive and Type-S had the 300mm fronts.

    The Alloys wheel on the CL7 & CM1 and their dimension has no bearing on the disc size. Those was the only disc on those chassis. The factory option on SE was 15inch and EX was 16 as an option.

    You want to look at this if you are working on your discs bud, Vital Brakes Maintenance Information

    The wheel size has quite a lot to do with disc diameter as its very difficult to fit anything above 280mm discs under 15inch wheels as a lot of guys opt for the 282mm Accord gen 5 or 6 setup when upgrading the brakes on the 6th Generation Civics primarily as thats what fits their 15inch wheels.

    In addition to ECP, I have also checked Carparts4less, DCPerormance and Brakes4U the master distributor for EBC and they all offer 280 & 300mm discs for the 2.0 CL7.
    Brakes4U only offer 300mm front discs based upon my registration number which brought up the correct vehicle details including the colour.

    Yes you are right only if you are planning to upgrade from 280 to bigger disc then the 15 inch alloys become redundant . My assertion was to the stock trim what came from Honda.

    I did this on my 2.0 tourer Suspension, Steering and Brakes - 7th Generation Honda Accord 2.0 Brake Upgrade

    Fitting twin piston calipers from the ATR looks like a worthwhile mod. Think I will check my front discs in the morning, will only use a tape measure to get a rough measurement to ascertain if they are 280mm or 300mm fronts. Might be just me but they look visably larger diameter than the discs on my 6th Generation which are 282mm sitting behind the standard 16's.

    The 320mm 8th Generation setup you fitted to your 7th Generation look very good and Im guessing they would fit under 17inch wheels as you can fit 328mm discs under an EP3's 17inch wheel?

    If you don't mind me asking how much is the 8th Generation kit roughly including the calipers, discs, pads, screws and fluid?
