    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.8 V6 Turbo (280)


    Mileage : 82000

    Default Which hoses?

    I've just bought a set of 314mm calipers in need of some TLC and just wondering if it's worth going with braided hoses when I fit them. I've seen Goodridge hoses at a touch over £100 but are they really worth it?

    Also are there many other options other than OEM or would it be pointless to uprate them?

    Thanks
    Matt
