    upgrade wise load's of folk have gone to the 314's from gsi's but a ferw of us have gone to 302's as much cheaper option, try new disk's and pad's the same size but go for green stuff pad's and drilled disk's if you dont want hastle changing calliper's...

    on my vectra b sri that i had before the veccy c, i had ebc drilled and grooved discs and greenstuff pads, worked a treat and looked good behind the rims, i think i paid about 160 quid all in but it was about 3 years ago, as and when i need to change the discs on my current vectra i think i'll be going down the same route

    Check if Saab are likely to be selling any more of the 314s, they stop better, are much more progressive & probably wouldn't work out any more expensive than uprated 285 discs & pads - I can highly recommend the 314s

    I spoke to the chap at saab and the 314mm kits had long gone, he had some because the saabs had gone away to be modified - so the original 314's had to be taken off.

    speak to dan at LMF, there was a possibility that he may be getting more in.

    they had one set for £350 plus postage but I bought it........muhahaha.......lol

    you could go down the route of ebc green and disks - you will see a benefit, also speak to HEL in exeter for a full set of braided lines - I've got some and it was only £50.
