    what exactly do u mean by "whole new brakes" ???

    first of all have u got 4 stud or 5 stud wheels as the brake size differs

    (Note for those unsure - on the 1.8 - ABS models have 5 stud 280mm discs, Non-ABS models have 4 stud 256mm discs)

    Front disc and pads kits can be had for approx £30-35 so its not exactly braking the bank

    just let us know whether 4/5 stud and I'll find u the correct kit

    well if u just want like for like replacements then u cant go wrong with these £37.89 delivered

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VAUXHALL-ASTRA-G-98-04-FRONT-BRAKE-DISCS-AND-PADS-4STUD_W0QQitemZ220378249225QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_C arsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item22037824922 5&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1683|66%3A2| 65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318


    If you try locally at a local motor factors u may be able to get them for about £30 or so due to saving on postage etc

    Unless u wanna spunk about £150-200 on replacement parts for a 4 stud 280mm upgrade then this link above really should be the best idea especially considering ur current situation
