    Go for the 308mm brake upgrade and imo Eibach sportsline springs are possibly the best try www.lmfvauxhall.co.uk and ask for Steve Crook

    if you ask me your better off spending the money on a red dot turbo spec set up aka 308mm
    as its a lot better then the 280 mm set up what wheels do you have on the car at the mo
