    Default OEM Brake disks + Pads

    Looking at changing the brakes on my 04 plate 2.2direct sri.

    So the question what size do I need don't have the car handy to measure it's in the doctors due to a dose of the spanners.

    just wondering because I had a quick look around and found 302mm and it said these are for the sport models.

    but lastly does anyone please have the part number and a rough guide price so when i goto the stealers tomorrow.

    cheers and happy new year.

    Sadly not, both front and rear disc and pad sets for my 3.0 V6 CDTI has been quoted at £335 excluding labour, due at next service
    The fixed price disc and pad kit is all models, except the 314mm discs

    Sorry, that's twaddle!!! 314mm brake kit is still £65 from dealers (retail price), same for the 292mm rears - what yours, the 3.2 and the 2.0T have. You've obviously been quoted for the discs and pads separately, not the kit.

    I bought both 314mm front and 292mm rear kits this year and they were that price. Well, they were actually around £45 each as I got them at Trade Club price and just bought the OEM pads additionally.

    Rechecked the quote
    The front brake pad and disc kit is £155
    The rear brake pad and disc kit is £180

    The front brake pads and fitting kit alone are £45
    The rear brake pads and fitting kit alone are £55
    The front discs (314mm) alone are £85 each or £135 for a pair
    The rear discs (292mm ventilated) alone are £115 each or £180 for a pair

    That's before discount and labour
    Front brake pad renewal at 31,300 cost me £0.00
    I did question it last time, thought the dealership had made the mistake as I don't pay for these, but it is due to any of the Vectras with the 314mm discs being exlcuded from this offer

    Well in that case your dealer are trying to pull your trousers down and give you a royal you know what.

    You can most definitely, without a doubt, absolutely get the 314mm front disc and pad kit and 292mm rear disc and pad kit for £65 from the dealers. As I said, I bought both this year at that price (well, less due to being Trade Club), as have other guys.

    Which leads me into posting my latest job from Christmas Eve,back and front kits purchased for 131.65 from local dealer.All fitted for a fantastic price thanks to the boys at TYRE EXCHANGE MIDDLESBROUGH.
    The facilites there are second to none,and having your car worked on with great kit,and in 'sterile' conditions (such is the cleanliness imposed by the management) makes you feel right special about your motor if you know what i mean.....
    I chucked the standard pads in the boot and had EBC Greenstuff fitted,in short I 've previously had these fitted on me 'OL Astra and I love 'em love 'em love 'em!
    Their just starting to bed in slightly now,bit of a way to go yet

    Oh and by the way they sort me tyres out also and the price is extremely competitive,so give them a shout if your near,and need their services,i don't work for them!!!! But i will always back a great business,and if your fussy who works on your Car like i am,i'd like to think i've pointed people in the right direction,so they too get good service,good prices and no B*ll Sh8T.
    Lets face it isn't this what a forum is for?
    These are the picks
