    Default Which discs? 280/302mm?

    Hi,
    I have a 2004 (54) SRi 1.9 150 (Z19DTH).

    Im after a set of new front brake discs, but seem to be getting a choice between 280mm and 302mm.

    Does anyone know what size would be fitted to my car?
    I would measure but im working away from home at the minute.

    Thanks!

    Jezzy's list is quite useful for this.

    Thats brilliant, many thanks!

    Also, do the 314mm brake callipers bolt straight on? May be tempted to go bigger for the right price.

    To switch to 314s you need to buy the calipers, carriers, disks and pads - none of your original parts will be any use.

    But yes, they bolt straight on and I believe they use the 314mm discs on the Insignia?

    No, different offset and PCD.

    Thats the main reason I bought mine to be honest, I've got 302's on mine as standard, but the 314's are significantly bigger physically calipers so fill behind the wheels better (although I still haven't finished painting mine up to fit yet lol). Not expecting a massive difference in braking ability, but the 19" wheels do look a little empty with 302's behind them lol
