    Default Brake Caliper advice

    Right guys need some advice. Is it possible to get 314mm brake discs to work with calipers off the 302mm?

    My car is a 2.2 non direct (04) sri so i think i have the 302's. need new discs and pads soon and want to buy the vx set for the price and fancied upgrading in size but dont really want to buy new calipers

    Anyone know?

    You won't have the 302 fronts on yours m8, yours will be the 285mm.

    Your only option to have the 314mm fronts is to have the whole upgrade kit i.e. calipers and carrier, discs and pads.

    A possible Plan B for you m8.....

    I bought a set of the 314mm kits that Saab place was selling recently. I've already got the 314mm upgrade but at the price they were going for it was rude not to get them! lol and I was going to have them as a 'spare' set - once I collect them from Cabby that is! lol

    Anyway, I decided that once I did get them I would actually just paint them up and fit the new ones, just to have all new brakes rather than sat around in a box waiting for the day I 'may' need them as a spare.

    Soooo, once they are fitted the 314mm kit that's on my car currently - calipers, carriers etc. would be up for sale. You could have first refusal before they went up - I'm sure we could sort out a price at the time.
