    Saab 9-3 brakes will most definitely fit as lomg as you source them from the correct car. Some are running the same as standard set up...285mm front.
    I got mine from a 1.9 TTiD, 314mm front and 292mm rear, both vented.....marked as GM parts and a straight swap onto mt Vec C.

    Only trouble with buying those calipers off ebay is that you still need the pads and discs which are the best part of 400 squid...

    Might as well buy brand new as Signumboy did...
