    astra G's are pain when it comes to fitting big brakes due to caliper clearance and the offset of the wheels, but it can be done. God speed do a set up for the astra G. Pete on here has them and he will fill you in on the details.

    An alternative to Brembo and IMO of better quality and customer support in the UK is Hi-Spec.

    Hi-Specs brakes might be good quality, but their customer service leaves something to be desired. Wouldn't rate them up with brembo tho.

    Yep I've been to there place a couple of times. Not at all impressed, not that it really matters aslong as the product is good. Shame their customer service isn't, doubt I'd use them again.
