    Default 345mm Vectra VXR Brake Upgrade

    Hi Everyone,

    Can I upgrade my standard 285mm front brakes to a 345mm VXR set-up? (Obviously providing I have the carriers, calipers, pads and discs).

    Yep, it's a straight swap. The only thing you may need to change is the pad sensor as the wire on the one for the 285mm calipers can be a bit short

    Hi Again!

    Right, I've been asked a question which has me worried now! Are the brake servo and master cylinder strong enough for the VXR brake set-up? They are the standard parts which are currently fitted to my 285mm brake set-up.

    Thanks for any help!
