    confused Standard SRi Brakes?

    Hi Guys,

    I've had a quick look on the forums using the search but can't seem to find the answer....

    I've got a 58 plate Vectra SRi and was wondering what the standard brake discs are on the SRi ... and are they any different to a non sport model like the Exclusiv?

    Thanks,

    Would there be any benefit of upgrading the brakes or do you think they're good enough the way they are?

    Thanks again

    Personally? I think they're shocking as they are and the 314mm V6 ones should be standard across the range. Mind you, I do now have the 345mm VXR ones...
