    Yes you can.
    But i wouldnt believe anything on that web site, they always post cheap prices and when you ring up that price never exists.
    Their has been alot of people on here moaning about that web site.

    You can't just change the discs and pads, you'll need the callipers to go with them and as Graham has said, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Yeah you can fit any size brakes that you want to on the Vec but you will need discs callipers and carriers for moving to 302s (the pads are the same if yours are good)

    I have 302s fitted to my 2.2dti which originally had 285s

    I've had good experiences with that site - yes you need to ring up and find out if the parts are still available, but I got a set of 292mm discs and pads for 45 squid...

    Yes, there was a member on here who had the 314s on his car fitted with 16's so the 302s shouldn't cause an issue
