    Default Police Spec Front Pads for V6

    Hi All,

    I've seen a few subjects on here refering to the "Police spec" on the 2.8 v6's for front brakes, and i kinda didn't pay much attention..... until now.

    I needed to change the rear disks and the front pads on my 2007 Elite 2.8 and becuase Vaux were doing a package deal on disk and pad sets, it was ridiculously cheap to get a whole disk and pad set for the front and rear, which i duly fitted a few weekends ago.
    Today, while clearing out the garage and doing a few runs to the tip (well, it is a weekend) i noticed on the front pad box, the white Vaux parts box,
    the label on it said :

    "Z28NET/Z28NEL ausgenommen Polizei (W4G) Z28NET/Z28NEL zusammen Polizei (W4G) ausgenommen Sportfahrewerk (XJ2) Z28NET/Z28NEL ausgenommen Polizei (W4G), OPC (W5B) Sportfahrwerk"

    So, have i inadvertently fitted "police spec" brakes? If so, what are the differences? harder pad material?
    If there is a difference in pedal feel etc i can't notice it, but i'm pretty light on the brakes anyway, the only thing i have noticed is much less brake dust on the wheels.

    Any info would be welcome.

    cheers
    Ian

    Bad news fella..."ausgenommen" means "except", i.e. those pads are suitable for any Vectra that has the 314mm disks/calipers (i.e. the 2.8V6s), except police vehicles, which need a different pad/part number.

    Cheers Jezzy,

    Yeah i figured that, but the label was confusing, saying both "excluded" and "including" so wasn't sure, i'm more than happy with standard brakes, suit me just fine, i'm interested in going, not stopping!
