    Default Big brake upgrade - Info needed

    Hey guys,

    I have 285mm front disks on mine along with small calipers and noticed a lot of people have bigger disks and calipers on there's. What model do i need to find in a scrappers that will have the bigger calipers and brackets. Will be getting new discs so dont need them. Just need to locate some calipers and brackets.

    Am i right in thinking its just brackets and calipers like the upgrade done to the veccy b.

    Also what sizes do the disks come in. Want the biggest ones i can get.

    Cheers

    The biggest ones are the 345mm discs from the VXR, but slightly more common will be the 314mm setu from any of the V6 non-VXR models, Signum or Vectra. The 2.0 Turbo comes with 302mm discs. All of the options need new calipers, carriers, discs and pads etc.

    314mm need 17" wheels to fit under, and the VXR's 18" ideally...

    What sort of reg are we talking about. The one i have found is a 55 plate so hoping they are 314's. Do they have the smaller caliper on the 302's or is it the same one on all the v6's. Just a bigger disk on the newer ones ?
