    Default Anyone local looking for 314mm brakes?

    Was just in at Sports Cars Breakers at Newbridge and they have in a preface 2.0t or its a 3.2 (the engine has been removed so not 100% sure) Anyway I digress....... So it has 314's, pads look pretty new, discs are rusty due to being in the open but feel pretty new too, no scores or lips on them. So on the way out I asked "how much for the front calipers for a Vectra C?" £25 each............... I'm so tempted to go back for them, but I have no real need for them. One of the rear caliper was missings, but I checked the handbrake lever and it was moving ok.

    It won't be a 2.0T, as that would have 302mm front discs

    I thought 302's were only used on early GSi's?

    Do cars fitted with the 302's still have the huge calipers like the 314's, or are they just 285 calipers but with larger hub mounting points?

    They are smaller than the 314/345mm calipers but bigger than the 285mm but if they look like 314mm then they will be the 302mm calipers don't look like them
