    Default Hi just new but a big brake question

    Hi,
    Would these brakes fit an '06 CDTI 150 sri? http://www.partsforsaabs.com/default...ath=52_432_434

    Reason I ask is because I hate the brake set up on my car especially now that it is around the 200bhp mark. My mates astra brakes are far superior!

    I want a decent big set of discs which fill the space inside the 19" snowflakes that are on the car and that will bring the car to a halt quickly. Having run Green stuff pads in Escort cosworths etc in the past i'd prob eventually go with those but need big discs. Help!



    Cheers all.


    Can anyone help? Cost is not really an issue.

    Hi,
    do you have a link i can go to to view the options for the discs you mention? Don't really want to go with a bigger wheel but need something to fill that space behind the 19's. They need upgrading soon cos they really are pants.

    200bhp is fast enough these days but much more effective if you can stop rapidly too.

    many thanks.

    You could also fit the VXR set up with 18's or 19's
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
