    astra mk3 bigger discs?

    This is my first post, just to say the website looks wicked, its great to find somewhere dedicated to astras. Hopefully you guys will be able to help me.

    My car is a mk3 astra 1.4 8v mpi with 15" alloys. I have been looking to upgrade my brakes for ages and when i saw some red dot 20groove discs in halfords being cleared out for £18 i couldnt say no. although it says that they are for an astra mk3 1.8 8v.

    the dimensions of them are 256mm x 20mm. i think that the standard ones on my car are 236mm x 20mm. Will these go straight on my car, if not what would need to be done to get them to fit? i also got some red dot pads which are for the 1.4 for £12 which were a bargain too.

    I would really appreciate your ideas on this.

    you'll need some corsa gsi calipers iirc, as they are the small block 256's. and the pads will fit fine.

    Excellent now I just need i just need to find some calipers. I cant see any on ebay at the moment, but i did find these 4 pot wilwood calipers. Would they be compatible and would i need any extras to get them to fit?
