    Default Vectra Vxr brakes

    Hi guys, anyone know the part numbers for front calipers & carriers for the vectra Vxr? Plus is the calipers the same as the gsi, just the carriers are different?

    Calipers are the same, brackets are different and you cannot buy the brackets as a seperate item apparently.

    As Sebastian says the Calipers are slightly different, and yes you can get the carriers on their own from VX. I think you are looking about £800 for a set up from VX and thats at GM employee prices.

    So in other words the OP still needs to find a set of 345 calipers then?

    Here are a set for £500. : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vectra-VXR...item3ccf32ef77

    Can't see if they have the brackets (although it's mentioned in the ad) but hey ho you can 'apparently' (a word that seemed to be forgotten about in my original post) get them from Vauxhall if not.
