    If they're still available - and cheap - buy them anyway, stick them on ebay for other Astra owners to fight over.

    The 314mm calipers can be made to take the 345mm VXR discs and pads, so all you need is the larger carriers. However, they do need a bit of modding and the one person who's done it (3.2GSI) got hold of the rest of the parts cheaply. He also advised that it was only a job for someone who knew what they were doing...

    You can buy the whole VXR setup brand new for about 800 squid from courtney...

    if you have 285mm on at the moment why not just spash out on some posh disks and pads? ive just got EBC Ultimax disks and green stuff pads and im bouncing off the widscreen now.



    if you want expensive brakes my mate runs a Evo4 fully kitted up........ £2000 a Corner!!!!!!!! More money than sence the pads are somthing like 300 quid a corner! HUGE 6 pot Brembos and 4 pots at the back
