 Does anybody knows the difference between a 185mm and a 203mm disc brake system ?

18mm  :)

The measurement refers to the size of the disc rotor.  The bigger the rotor, the more power the system has (with all other things equal).  For the most part 203mm rotors are overkill for Florida riding so 185mm rotors will do just fine.
