    fit the parts as a 'kit' and don't mix and match, then you know it will be 100% okay..

    I would never fit a new caliper on one side only Anything to do with brakes, steering and suspension should always be done as a pair.

    if you fit them as an axle set, then you will be fine...just get some new copper washers for the brake line banjo bolts.. don't reuse the old alloy one's...

    Thanks for all the help will pass the advice onto the garage that will be fitting them. Was quoted £129 for supply and fit disks and pads and £176 for supply and fit one brake caliper so this way I will save some money
    Thanks

    The 2.0T discs are larger than what will be on your 2.2. - 292mm compared to 278mm. I don't know exactly what adjustments you'll need to make, if any, to fit the calipers and discs, but just so that you were aware.
