    Default Which brakes do I have?

    Hi lads,

    i have a 2004 model CDTi 150ps model which has just been remapped, I now find the brakes seriously lacking.

    Im looking for a brake upgrade and short of the vxr kit, which is a ridiculous price, the V6 brakes (314mm?) kit seems like good value. But what size are the brakes on my car, I've seen 285 and 304 mentioned so which am I more likely to have? And will I notice a difference?

    Also will the v6 callipers bolt right on?

    Thanks in advance.

    292 front, 285 rear. Yes 302, or 314 will bolt to the front, as long as you remember to get the mounting carriers too.

    314's are what you want to have. Stop you quicker, harder and without drama.
