    Nope - they're much bigger and use the 314mm discs and pads. Straight fit though...

    Hmmm,,,,,, this has me thinking about the Saab as my Aero has 314mm discs and the ATE calipers are the same as the 286mm version but with different carriers,,,,,,,

    Could these carriers be an option to fit the 314mm discs? Some investigation required me thinks,,,,,

    The calipers are generic and fitted to lots of different models with different disc sizes, it's the carriers that vary from each model...

    The Saab is based on the Vectra and a common upgrade is for the 314mm disc carriers to be bought, If this is so it's a great little upgrade on Saab's so would benefit the Vectra expecially with the 9-3 uprated caliper and vented x-drilled discs, a wicked look indeed

    Do a search mate - there's laods of people that have fitted them, or the 345mm VXR brakes which are the same as the Hirsch upgrade for the saabs...
