    confused Which size brake discs????

    The front pads and discs on my 2004 Gsi need changing. I have been looking around for disc and there 2 types, one set are 302mm and the other 314mm.

    Does anyone know the vin range cut off when vauxhall changed from 302 to 314??

    Also has anone fitted EBC redstuff pads to their vectra and if so how would you rate them.

    you will have 314's...same as me....

    EBC redstuff is a matter of taste.. Mark the Cabby loves his in his 314 setup, but plasma hated his and went on to fit police spec 314mm pads instead..

    in fact, as you're local, if you want a disc and pad kit, i'll lay you one in at trade prices..

    There are actually three sizes of front brake discs for the Vectra C :
    285mm - all models, except as below
    302mm - 2.0T
    314mm - 3.2 V6 / 3.0 CDTI V6

    Two for rear brake discs :
    278mm (solid) - all models, except as below
    292mm (vented) - 2.0T / 3.2 V6 / 3.0 CDTI V6

    cheers for your help guys, i didnt want to make a costly mistake and order up the wrong ones.

    i think i will go for the EBC redstuff pads this time around and if they are no good then wont bother next time, and i think i may have to get out the blue caliper paint as well, i think the silver VXRs with the blue brakes look awesome.

    i will put some pics on when finished, i need an updated one of my car with the autotint design dtm style spolier on

    Interesting - do you know when they changed? My fronts were changed about 18 months ago as they were badly worn - new parts fitted were G0093175606.

    I know at the time the only place I could get them done was the dealers - local brake centre could not get the correct size (pads I think) for the 3.2.

    Yep, 314's indicated in first 2004 Brochure, 302's (as fitted to my 2.0T) in earlier brochures. Looks like 312's from 2004 on for the 3.2 V6's.
