    Lol, I found the thread with the list on there showin size as 285 after I'd posted.
    If the car comes with 285s as standard, why do the shops give u 2 choices?

    What would happen then if I bought the bigger discs, would they still fit? If all 2.0ltr dtis have 285s they why the option I have been asked in all the motor shops I called?

    Because they probably don't have all the information and knowledge we have about our cars - they only have a book...

    Either that or they were looking at the fronts and rears...

    285's are standard on all except V6's and 2.0T petrol
    302's (standard on 2.0T petrol and early 3.2 petrols) will probably fit
    314's (standard on V6's (except early 3.2 petrols)) will fit but only on wheels that are 17" or larger.

    314's fit under 16s

    Also you'll need calipers/carriers if you want to have bigger discs
