    Help On Brake Discs

    Hi all i need some help with front brake discs.
    Having just got the gsi the front discs on it are not to good ,but the old car that was smashed up we put new discs on it about 2 months ago and was wondering if we could swap them over if they are the same.
    The old car was a 1.8 16v mk3 sport 1996
    new car is 2.0 gsi 1997
    any help would be really appreciated.
    Thanks

    No, as the mk3 has 256mm discs, the mk4s have 288s. Both sizes are only £42 +VAT trade club from Vauxhall, for discs and pads.

    Standard - but Nice.

    If they are both ABS, they should both be 256mm - so I'm saying yes

    Sorry, you're right. for some reason I thought the 'new' car was a Mk4 GSi, I've just noticed it's a Mk3 too.

    So yes, they're both 256mm.

    Standard - but Nice.
