    I used to be a mechanic so to be honet they were simple to fit... Really easy... just unbolt the standard callipers complete and then remove the old discs.. fit new discs and then te new callipers bolt straight on wherethe old ones were... I cant tell how they are yet... need to wear them in for a couple of hundred miles then im sure tey will be fine... they are massive compared to standard...


    An just to add so everyone knows they are straight off a new saab 9-3 aero v6... exactly the same as vauxhall...

    drove the car for about 5 mins yesterday after they were fitted to pop out to the shop, and then again later in the evening they are improving rapidly... I can feel an improvement in the feel of the pedal already...a couple of days and im sure they will be worn in and they should be feeling great!
