    Exclamation Facelift vs Prefacelift are the front Brakes the same on the CDTI?

    Can you fit a whole brake kit from a Vectra C 1.9 CDTI elite 16v Pre Facelift (Holders,caliper whole kit) (Front kit)

    to a facelift 1.9 CDTI ELITE 16V (Front)

    I have fitted the Vectra VXR kit to my pre face lift but can my Prefacelift fit the similar model in the facelift?

    I ask as a sold my old kit from the vectra on ebay 285/286 TO Someone who said he had a facelift model as the 1.9 CDTI but he goes they will not fit even though he confirmed the disc size is correct and now has started a dispute?

    Is he having me on?

    They only difference between some of the 285 calipers were the anti rattle springs, some had a wire and others had a bent plate

    My calipers he purchased you could read the part number off the caliper itself as the caliper was cleaned so much and the pictures where of good quality.
