    What size alloys are they? You can get away with fitting 16's over the top of 314mm discs and calipers.

    The standard VX 17's fit over them so yours should be fine.

    Thought that was only the 3.2 Petrol models?

    There seemed to be a bit of confusion over that from past posts i.e. dealers asking/saying to some 3.0 owners that they needed 302mm discs when they went in to buy them ( I think due to what it said on EPC) but actually turning out that they did have 314mm fitted. No owner of a 3.0, as far as I can remember, has turned up saying that they have 302mm kit on their car - so we're all confused! lol
