    Vehicle : Vectra C SRi 1.8vvti

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 18.vvti

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 29,500

    Default Insignia Brembo's

    Would it be possible to fit the front Brembo calipers and discs from an Insignia VXR onto my Vectra face lift SRi?

    I'm guessing all that it would need is custom brackets made up for them.

    The disks won't fit either, the PCD is different.

    Reminds me - if you have a few hours spare, you can read this thread on Barry Boys about some muppet who was perfectly happy drilling holes in brake discs to make them fit other hubs...

    The brake stuff starts there but to get the full effect read the thread from the start...

    I'd love the Brembos on my Insignia, but you need a different suspension setup with the new Hyperstruts to make them fit. My only upgrade option is the 2.8 Elite setup which is marginally bigger than what I have at the moment...
