    I'd be wary of them mate - the VXR rears are the 292mm vented discs, exactly the same as the rears on the 2.8 Turbo, 2.0 Turbo and the 3.0 CDTi. The only differences are the fact that they're painted blue at the factory, have a slightly different handbrake cable attachment (which isn't an issue) and cost about 130 quid each... :each:

    I doubt they're proper VXR ones, but as long as they're from any of the engines listed above they'll fit yours not problem...

    VXR rear brakes are identical to rear brakes on any other 2.8, or the 2.0, 3.2 and 3.0, other than the blue paint.

    Not entirely true - the handbrake attachment is in a slightly different place, but it's completely compatible...
