    If they aren't Brembo calipers, then I'd say don't stick on Brembo decals - it'll look stupid IMO.

    as per Duncans reply - if they aren't brembos then don't label them up as such. you'll get people saying "oh wow - you got brembo discs", and you'll have to reply "eerm...no actually, they're just the stickers"

    i'd say go for the vauxhall ones

    I agree with what Duncan said, I considered Irmscher decals when I did mine.
    I went with blue vauxhall ones instead

    That'd be another option. That's what Cabby did on his.

    The silver looks excellent . Did you use Foliatec paint & where do you get the Vx stickers?

    The paint is smooth hammerite, gave a couple of coats when I did them last year. Gave them a recoat on Saturday just to tidy up.
    It does a good enough job, ok with temperature.

    The decals are from this guy, just put a coat of clear nail varnish lacquer over the top when fitted. Helps to protect them.
