    You can get the Vectra VXR brakes from Courtenay, IIRC around £750

    I can't remember the size of the VXR brakes, but they do fi if you change the calipers too.
    Although I've been able to hammer the GSi brakes round a track since upgrading the discs, pads & brake fluid

    So there was no brake fade or at least not a lot, interested as I might upgrade to the GSi set-up.

    I felt the brakes cook a couple of times at the end of the main straight after braking from 110mph into a tight 30mph bend a few times but they soon cooled again for the rest of the lap.
    I'm happy to leave them as they are now, but I think that fitting the EBC redstuff pads made a big difference as they are high temperature pads.

    Cheers
    They work really well too. You can really stamp on them even when very hot.
