    Default 3.0 cdti brakes confusion

    I need new brakes on the front of my vecci sri estate and I just had a massive row with my local garage as we are both getting different stories from different dealers!


    He called a dealer for a quote and was quoted £80+ vat for the kit and asked to check if they were 302mm or 314mm

    I was surprised as expected them to be 314mm at £65+ vat so I called my local dealer and got told, yes sir 314mm kit for £78 all in.

    So I am going to buy that kit and take them to my local for fitting, but I don't want to look like a dick by turning up with the wrong pads!!!

    Are all 3.0's 314mm on the front?
    Does anyone have the correct part number for the kit as to add more confusion its an 05 plate so two different kits????? Or is that just the police spec pads?

    Check the chassis number and see which of those two groups of numbers it fits into.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    I thought all 3.0CDTI's were fitted with 314mm as standard from day one, unlike the 3.2 petrols where early examples were fitted with 302's before 314mm became standard.

    So start where the 3551****70. Thats the number. As above, I thought they all had the 314's with only some of the 3.2's having the smaller ones. You could always measure the disk.....

    I'm pretty sure they are 314mm's!

    I'll just hope my dealer is right!!

    I wasn't aware of the 3.0 ever being fitted with 302mm fronts like the early GSis were.
