    Default Braided brake lines.

    ...are these available for the vecci c? I'd like to improve the feel of the brakes, and I thought braided hoses would be a good way of doing it.
    I have searched the net and cant find any for the vectra c..

    i foned a few salvage yards today too, for some big front calipers, off a gsi.... only to endup arguing that there is a 3.2 v6 vectra!... he actually started to convince me these isnt a 3.2 lol.

    anyway... braided hoses... does anybody know if these available?

    Mark (the Cabby) has the only set in the country at the moment. Have a word with him, but I think he had to beg.

    yes, discs would be good, I do believe there are probs with the design of the braided hoses. I'll try to find out more later.

    I would also change the fluid to Dot 5.1 Racing for a better feel. Quite a good improvement

    Try Courternay.

    You keeping it then?

    ESP Design should be able to help however it doesn't specify which VX can have the hoses.

    http://www.espdesign.co.uk/esp.store.../Product/62918

    But they do brake kits for Vectra C

    http://www.espdesign.co.uk/esp.store.../Brk_Vau_Vec_C

    Abbott Motorsport do the hoses and again I don't know if they'll fit a Vectra C/Signum (still waiting for an email back)
