    Default drilled & groved brakes . . .

    i wanting to upgrade my vec-c brakes to drill and groves ones. But a bigger size aswell.

    Any recommendations ?

    Im not looking to updrade whole brakes or go down the vxr route. I want to stick to the same calipers just slight bigger size disc so its looks abit better under my 19" snow flakes.

    Well, without changing the calipers, you cant fit bigger discs???

    I've gone from the 302mm to the 314mm and got to say its an incredible difference!

    Look to pay around £200 for a decent set of 314's. Maybe £100(?) for a decent set of 302's. (314mm on V6's and 302mm on 2.0T Petrol)
