    Default Standard brake disc size!?

    Hi folks,

    I was in the garage the other week getting some codes read and one of the mechanics commented that he used to have a vectra and said that my brakes looked decent. I never thought anything off it untill i was looking at the trade club book pricing things up to pass some time today and noticed all the different brake sizes.
    I just went out and measured my front discs and they are 314mm. Would this have been the standard brakes it left the factory with? Its a 2004 1.9 CDTi 150 SRi.

    Ok dont want to sound like a biff here but are these the standard shocks?


    The car does seem quite low? Might just be my imagination tho.

    Thats the trouble with buying from a garage, i have no idea what the previous owner did to the car

    Not standard . Deffinettly bilsten,s my guess is they are B6,s which are uprated from standard .I would also expect you to have uprated springs as well in that case .

    Wow, two upgrades I never knew I had!!! I wish every day was like this lol!! The car is noticeably bumpy / harsh ride when going over uneven surfaces. I was thinking a spring may have broke lol.

    I have no idea to be honest. It would be good if they were as I could read all the old posts. Might go check the log book for a name...

    Google the reg number too. For that sort of mod I would guess they are a member of a VX forum/club somewhere.
