    Default Help, my brake discs turned into CD's ...

    Upgrading your wheels to 19" ones is one thing. But take a look at what the brake discs turned into. So now I find myself considering fitting 345mm/292mm brake discs on this 2.2DTI (currently 285mm/278mm). Red powder coated brake calipers, maybe an Irmscher logo on them.

    I'd like to stick to standard Vauxhall/Opel calipers as much as possible and maybe EBC (green/red) pads and discs. Does anyone of you guys now what I'am getting myself into? Anything to keep in mind while proceeding with this project? Any expert advise? Braided hoses? Grooved or drilled discs?



    Cheers,
    Hans

    Most people fit the 314mm discs and matching calipers from a GSi spec model. Fills the wheels out better. I think 345mm's are VXR's if i'm not mistaken. The actual change over is fairly ok. I've tried EBC red pads on standard VX discs which were grooved but found them too noisy so took them off again.

    My current setup is better, they are 6 grooved and dimpled with VX OEM pads, cant remember which discs i've got on their atm.. Possibly the EBC discs.
