    sxi brakes

    I've got a '00 X 1.6 SXi. (With ABS)

    Looking for new front discs, all the 256mm discs (pretty sure these are the right size) i've seen seem to be suited for models without ABS.

    ??? Any ideas

    iirc ABS models had 280mm discs . This will be why all the 256 ones u have seen have been for non ABS models! One sure way to clarify is have u got 4 or 5 studs? Most 4 studs were non ABS but a few 4 studs had ABS fitted? All 5 studs had ABS so hopefully we can clarify once we know this. 4 studs have 256, 5 studs use 280. i take it ur lookin for some uprated ones or just std ones? plain, grooved, drilled ???

    If ur lookin for just standard ones then the Vx ones are pretty damn good. Why not use the search facility on here - no doubt it has been discussed many times and hopefully will give u some much needed advice. Personally I got some grooved/drilled ones on ebay (same ones as used by a few ppl on here - seem ok so far but think I might prefer the std Vx ones instead - but I'll be keepin em cos they look good lol)

    EDIT: May be advisable to ignore all the shit above! Ive had a drink or two! lol U have a 1.6 therefore probs have 4 stud and therefore one of the rare ABS models therefore 256mm is correct.

    The Vauxhall sales brochure for 2000 specifies 256 diameter for 1.4, 1.6 and 1.7DTi with or without ABS plus 1.8 / 2.0Di without ABS.

    280 diameter was used on 1.8 / 2.0Di with ABS and 2.0 / 2.0DTi with or without ABS.

    So bazsxiuk needs 256.

    Drives :- Hyundai Santa Fe
