    Are The Astra VXR Callipers The Same As The GSI?

    Just to clear this up ... Are the new Astra VXR callipers the same callipers as the mk4 Astra/SRI-T/Coupe Turbo had? ... just it has bigger discs? ... (and of course they've been painted blue)

    i think so, jsut slightly bigger pad carriers that bolt to the hub to clear the bigger discs. if thats the case, then a vxr setup shouldnt be too much dosh for the front, jsut bigger pad carriers and discs.

    The pad carriers arent actually that cheap, they are fairly expensive for what they are.

    i will ask nice for a price for the VXR ones from my vauxhall dealer's and then see what it costs them remember the dealers need to cover costs ie to bring the into the uk as well
    the astra turbo ones for the 308mm set up have came down in price a lot now
