    The rear does so little braking overall that it makes little to no difference other than asthetics if you want to upgrade them too.

    The only time it would be worth thinking about is if you run your car on a track or were going to do major engine upgrades. I would save your money and spend on other areas of the car (remap).

    Vehicle : Opel Vectra GTS

    Trim : Elegance

    Engine : 2.2 DTi 16V

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 75 000

    If I judge from pads wearing, the rear doesn't do so little braking.

    I upgraded the rear to 292 mm vented brakes at the same time I upgraded the front to 314 mm.

    Used parts are not so expensive you should hesitate. Be warned you'll have to replace the heat shields, though. I didnt' have to do it at the front, as the small ones for GTS (SRi) are the same for all sizes (same as VXr/OPC ones, BTW) : they only protect the lower joint from the disc heat.
