    Default 314 Brake upgrage - Little info Plse

    Gents

    I have been able to get a set of the 314mm disks from SAAB.. yeeehaa. (many thanks to Damian! )

    But i have to admit, I have a friend to do the install, if i supply him the bits.. no problem, but i think i have got myself a little confused.. yes i know its not hard....

    I recall that some of the memebers here suggest changing some bolts? when you install these.. is this true? or will the old one suffice? if ypou do, dont suppose anyone has the PArt No....please!

    Also sorry, maybe the wrong place, but the Part nO. for VX Police spec pads.... many thanks...

    cheers guys! thanks in advance.. 1st of a few upgrades...

    The bolts are supposed to be changed due to the high torque when originally fitted and you'll also need to change the banjo bolt washers,the part no's are,VOO24430175 for the washers and VOO93171511 for the bolts.
