I'm told that a ship's anchor, mounted where the spare tire usually hangs, and with a quick-release tied to the brake pedal will work.

Seriously though, what's wrong with the standard brakes?
(Often, a 'brake problem' is really bad shocks, damaged disks or pads, leaky system, or problematic ABS.)

Decent pads help, I fitted new pads and discs to my 1.9D ( Brembo discs and EBC pads ) and was surprised at how poor the brakes had become so I left the discs on and fitted new genuine citroen pads and all of a sudden found my brakes were wonderful again, scarily so !!!

I dare say there are racing pads etc available but cannot comment on those.

I just fitted new discs and pads as standard to our 2.0 Hdi and it stops perfectly. You don't need race discs or rally pads they take longer to warm up and are scary when they are cold.
So where does this bit go then ?

I am running 306 gti6 front brakes with brembo discs and ds2500 racing pads on my 1.9d to be honest I would say there isn't a better setup than these unless you go brembos

When you say discs and pads as " Standard " do you mean all Citroen Parts or all Motor Factor parts ?

You could always fit smaller diameter wheels as this will make the wagon stop quicker.

Brembo and Ferodo, just not race or uprated or anything different from the standard fitting. Race pads are harder compound and take longer to heat up so unless you are treating them rough they are wasted on the road.

I run DS2500 pads and work very well on the road from cold.
