    Default Which would you have?

    I desperately need new brakes because the standard ones simply aren't adequate for this engine (especially now when it's chipped)
    I'm trying to decide which kit to go for but I simply cant..
    I would go for either VXR single piston 345mm kit or Nex 4 piston 324mm brakes..
    Now, as many of you probably haven't heard of Nex, I guess that you would go for VXR..
    Nex brakes are being used by neobrothers and a lot of other tuners, and their saab which won nurburgring and some other races has them fitted..
    some astra vxr owners have them fitted too and they say it's a massive improvement over OEM 4mm bigger (328) disc..
    they don't look bad and I think that they might offer better brake force than VXR because there isn't that large difference in diameter, and Nex brakes have 4 pistons which gives a lot more pressure to discs and stopps more effective.. they are also much less likely to fade which is important on so heavy car like vectra. the discs are floating design, more resistant to heat than OEM ones so that's their another advantage

    prices are similar, so let's put question this way:

    If both were free and you had right to choose one, which would you choose?

    I think I would try the 4pot solution, what about you?

    All comments are appreciated.

    btw, here are the pics
