    Default Check out them apples!

    Whilst in Norfolk on business yesterday, I popped in to Courtenay to collect my brakes.

    Brand New 345mm VXR front set up. Here's a picture, they are huge!

    I only uppacked one side for the pic. The best bit was my insurance though, I rang them to tell them what I was planning and they said they would only cover them on my policy if they were fitted by a Vauxhall dealer. OK, I said, what will the premium increase be.............Nothing they said!

    So I called Marshall's and they are charging me £40 inc VAT to do the conversion.

    Can't complain at that, so I'm booked in for 8am on Thursday for them to be done. The pads are also the Police spec pads, but I was then told all the pads for the Z28NET and Z20NEL are police spac anyway. It states this on the box as well.

    Ace - if they're anything like the 314 OEM ones though, your wheels will need a fair amount of cleaning very regularly.....

    They're actually a bit worse for dust than the 314s!, as I've found out after running my 345s for a little while now! Just means wheels need cleaning more often.

    Come on Matt - get 'em on then and get pics up!
