    Default Brakes on 2004 2.2 dti sxi estate?

    Hey guys just a quick question my mother has a 2004 2.2 dti estate and her brakes are alot better than mine they have a much better bite and have way more power than i have on my 2004 sri cdti hatch even when i changed my discs and pads all round they were way worse than hers!So the question is do the estates have bigger brakes as standard i doubt they would be 314mm as she has 16" sxi alloys and dont think the 314s fit behind them.She is thinking of trading it in soon so if they are bigger i might swap them with mine lol.

    Mine are 285mm iirc and thought that the estate may have 302s as its a heavier motor the difference between the two really is nite and day?Il whip a wheel off it tomoz if i get a chance and il have a looky.
