    Question have vauxhall used volvo brakes on vxr's?

    as title suggests have vauxhall used volvo t5 calipers on the vxr's? as these ones for sale on ebay for a t5 are a spitting image of vxr's and are even powdercoated blue only difference being they have a yellow "R" on them

    have vauxhall used volvo brakes on vxr's?
    I suppose the question is not if VX have used Volvo brakes but if Volvo and VX use the same supplier for their big brake set ups. I guess the only difference would be mounting points. If you knew who actually make those calipers, Lucas girling, haldex etc. then perhaps you could trace part numbers and check for a proper match.

    The VXR brakes are made by ATE, who supply lots of different companies. They also look 99% identical to the ATE calipers on the Focus ST.
