    New brakes, which ones and where to buy??

    The time has now come to replace the front pads but I want to uprate the discs at the same time.

    I have 18`s on in a 4 stud fitmemt with a 40mm drop all round.

    The standard discs need uprating to larger ones but I have no idea as to where to go to buy them and what size would suit the car best. At the same time new pads and callipers will need to be ordered as well.

    Any suggestions people.

    Idealy I would say the V6 kit that V-tuning sold were fantastic, all brand new GM items, but unfortunately due to that fire I dont think you can order things from them for now.

    Sounds ideal, but no, nothing can be ordered from them at the moment.

    your car has the cast legs over the disc if you look ifink.???
    take a look your see what i mean
    but its is easy to over come you will need a set of hub carriers from a turbo car and fit your hubs in to them get the turbo disc drilled to 4x100 and there you go if you want a set of carriers i have a set in my garage still from my hi spec setup that was on the car

    carriers you can have them for what i paid for them if you want
    i would say get your self a 308mm set up from a astra turbo and works
    very well should look alot better i will dig out the list of parts your need
    disc,callipers,pads,brackets to mount the callipers come with the kit you can buy from LMF ect ect
    can you get disc drilled near you? or steve sells them as well
