    Do a search for 314mm brakes and you'll find everything you need to know.

    Front calipers come in standard 285mm, 302mm, 314mm and VXR or Police Spec 345mm.
    You also need to consider what size wheels you have, I think, but am not sure, that 314mm will go under 16" wheels.
    I'm sure someone on here will know.

    The calipers for the 314 and the 345 are the same size, with a variation on the 345 to allow for the pads and the carriers are different on all size setups. The 314s will fit under 17s no problem, 16s im not sure. You're more likely to find a set of 314s at a reasonable price than 345s.

    314s with mtec grooved and drilled discs and mintex pads... you'll probably end up doing the same as me and thinking sod it, may as well do the back brakes too.... 292mm with ventilated drilled and grooved.

    From the gsi and v6s. Early GSis had the 308mm front and 292mm backs until the fronts changed to 314mm and the back stayed the aame... I think.
