    Default Upgrading brakes?

    For upgrading brakes..
    Is it satisfying to change rotors with EBC ventillated & grooved rotors of the original size or i should buy bigger size (300 mm or 345 mm)??

    What is the original size? (mm?)

    All the front brake sizes on the Vectra-C are already vented, only the smaller of the two rear sizes are not vented. 302mm (vented) disks will be better than the smaller ones, even if the smaller ones are grooved. To upgrade to bigger disks you will also need to change the caliper and carrier.

    Vehicle : Vectra-C

    Trim : SRi XP2 Nav

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2008

    Default

    A set of 314mm discs and matching calipers will give a very satisfying results and i'm sure there is plenty of reading on to to back this up, the calipers alone are the same size as the VXR's.
