    308 brake upgrade worth it on 2.2??

    Right i know this will be have been asked before but what answer i am looking for is was it worth upgrading the front brake setup to 308MM?

    Did it make a huge difference?

    Could you really tell the difference?

    Depending on your budget Courtenay also now do 322mm Astra VXR set up for 5 stud Mk4 Astras for £400.

    Thats new disc's AND calipers (Not just brackets so you use your old calipers)

    I will be selling my 308mm set up soon, front callipers and pads, with Tarox drilled discs.

    Covered about 2000 miles.

    Lee,

    yes i have seen that in the below post but at the moment £400 is a bit out of the budget. So if anything it will have to be the 308 kit if anything.

    Shows how little I know, I always thought the 2.2's already had 308mm discs! (or are the coupe 2.2 and hatch 2.2 different?)

    If they are different then I didn't feel any difference between my 2.2 coupe and my SRi-Turbo hatch. If you stamp on the pedal, you are still peeling your face of the screen with the ABS kicking in big style!
