    Default brakes finally fitted

    well i did the job today.. it was done by a vx garage (i wanted professionals to do it, matter of safety really) for 35 quid which wasnt even expensive imo.. (new brake oil included)

    anyway here is the result and i like it a lot

    (before and after)









    the pedal felt very soft in the beginning but after 30ish miles the feeling was gone.. now i just have to wait until they bed in and the fun can begin

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Take it from me, they will stop you so much better than your old set-up. I have the same, originally had standard 292 rears and 302 fronts on my 2.0T, and have upgraded my fronts to 314's, since I got the car remapped. The 302's were good, but the 314's are noticeably better.

    Fitting 285's on the front of any Vectra and non-vented rears is just penny-pinching and madness, especially on the heavier diesels.
