    You've got the 285mm front disks. As for how easy they are to replace, depends on what experience you have. Complete novice to car repairs? You might struggle. Changed brakes once or twice before on other models? It won't be too difficult if you read the How2 or have the Haynes manual. The Vectra caliper system isn't the hardest to work on, but there are easier systems, e.g. the ones where the caliper hinges upwards out of the way, like on V6 Omegas. BTW, you won't need the caliper piston rewind tool for the fronts, just the back ones.
