    yep.. straight off to Vauxhalls and buy their all in one kit...

    £65+vat buys you the two front discs and the 4 new pads you need to use..all in one nice big box..

    all their brake kits are the same price now, £65+V retail....you just can't go wrong..

    they only sqeak because they don't assemble them with any copper grease... a good fitter will never let a car leave with a squeal....

    the VX brakes are top notch...better than any budget aftermarket parts...

    £260.... well, if they where using VX parts, they'd be paying out £160 (trade inc vat) for the parts, so they're charging you £100 to fit them...a bit steep but by no means the worst price i've heard...whoever does fit them.. just make sure they don't assemble them dry..

    Are these kits available for all vectra's?
    I went into the dealers to price up a kit today for the v6 cdti and was told there is no kit available for this model.
    Price for disc pair was 90 +vat at trade club and pads about 40 + vat at trade club!
