    I've got the factory setup pads and discs as they were a secondhand set and new ones cost just over 400 quid...

    Running standard at the moment 17K , when I come to replace it will be Courtenay 16 groove discs and yellowstuff pads. Although drove an astra vxr with standard discs,braided hoses and mintex fast road pads and they were well impressive so maybe check out them if there available for the vectra vxr.

    The standard VXR set-up would be absolutely brilliant on a lesser powered vectra

    I've got the standard set up on my VXR and it's the one thing I'd change if I could afford the nigh on two grand to do it.

    I find the standard set up diabolical TBH and it's the one thing that truly shocked me on the car...
    Ken-tec FTW.
