    Uprated Brakes - what ones?

    ok want to get bigger brakes but not sure what ive £400 - £500 to spend on them and i was looking at 4pots but not sure what ones

    On the other hand thinking why dont i go for V6 brakes but for the cost i may as well pay the extra £150 ish quid and get 4 pots so its a nasty circle

    what to do

    i have a astra mk3 GSI by the way

    for £500, you'll be lucky. the calipers are about £150 each minimum and you'll need new hoses.possbily new discs but def new pads.

    I put them on my Vectra SRi in 2002. A mate has owned the car since 2003 and it still runs the same setup without issue.
