    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default 285mm up to 314mm discs?

    How easy is it to upgrade from the 285mm discs up to the 314mm set up?

    Vauxhall list both sizes for my Signum but I am 99% sure I have the 285mm ones.

    Whats needed to go up to the 314mm size?

    It's an easy upgrade but getting the bits at a decent price is the challenge

    I know the discs and pads are cheap as I bought some a couple of years ago, it's the calipers and carriers that'll cost you. I got mine from a saab dealer for 100 quid
