    Work out from this what size your front disks are, and with that info motor factors should be able to match the pads to the disks.

    A 2004 model should have 314mm front discs and 292mm rear.
    Early ones, i.e. 2002 and some 2003 models had 308mm fronts

    Should have gone to specsavers...lol. As in the spreadsheet above, models up to a certain chassis number have 302s, the rest have 314. Vec-B's have 308.

    The pads you have there are the same as fitted to mine - for 314mm discs. Mine are marked ATE as manufacturer.

    For the sake of anyone curious, the older type 302mm disc pads are roughly the same size as just the pad part of the 314 pad.
