    Default Brake hoses cut on VXR Calipers

    I just got my 345mm VXR vectra calipers and only one disk(emailed the numpty, good job I paid by paypal, hes gonna get a shock if the other disk doesn't show up). The Idiot I bought them from was so lazy that he just cut straight through the brake line when removing them!

    Where can I get new ones, and does anyone have a price/part number?

    Cheers.

    You'll get them from a local motor factor for fairly cheap! Won't be much of a problem. I'd prefer to fit new ones anyway to be honest dunno what someone else has done to them before you get them. Peace of mind for you.

    HEL Brake lines here http://helperformance.com/ only show bike ones but they had an advert recently in Total Vauxhall mag where they do specific sets for any Vauxhall.

    Not nice mate , for that sort of money you expect better .
    If your thinking of buying upgraded brakes let this be a warning lol , I've got some listed at the moment with "everything" included .

    Lol - it's only 1 x 11mm nut for god sake and a clip , and to think this guy is a professional breaker is worrying to say the least .
    Although did the advert state the brake pipes were included ?

    I don't know, but if its just hoses I was thinking they would be the same. Just the length may be different.
