    Default What are my options?

    Replaced the pads and disks around 1000 miles ago and to be honest they aren't up to the job. I got drilled and grooved fronts thinking they would be an improvement on the standard vx brakes and they aren't. So looks like i'll be buying something new shortly so what are the options? I've been looking on LMF's site and the 314mm upgrade is always out of stock is there anywhere else to get this from at a similar price? Courntney do the VXR upgrade but thats beyond my financial reach so any other suggestions please chaps. The cars a 1.9cdti with a tuning box so approx 180bhp and with 285mm fronts which are the ones i would be looking to change.

    You could try saab dealers, ive read on here before that some people have got brake upgrades from saab dealers when they've upgraded customers cars.

    Is there a online saab shop that does kits like LMF? The ones i've been looking in don't seem to do the 314 kit as an upgrade

    I bought my setup from the Saab dealer who had some on here for sale, still not got round to fitting them yet though! might be worth a try with them, think they were in Milton Keynes

    Yep, They apparently made a limited edition, so they changed the 314's for something a bit bigger, they then sold the calipers, caliper bracket's, bolts, disc's and pads for around £150, you had to either collect them yourself or pay for a courier..
