    Vxr brakes are awesome, massive difference over standard, a set or 2 on eBay ATM, not cheap but worth every penny!

    A 314mm front set up will do the job very nicely. I'm running a set and they are an excellent upgrade from standard. I am also running the 292 vented rears from the 2.8 V6 and VXR. In my opinion the stock 285 fronts are poor and not fit for purpose, especially on the 150 CDTi.

    Having to stop in a hurry at 70+ on 285's is no laughing matter. 314's bite quicker harder and longer. It really is a no-brainer.

    the 302's are much better than the 285's if you cant afford the 314's or 345 vxr one's..

    Agreed. Had them on my old 2.0T before I upgraded to 314's.
