    No problem, if you need any other info just ask...

    280's are a good updrade as provide par better brakig than the standard 256's

    I only changes as had trouble with my wifes original brakes so started to investigade what possibilities I could do as I had read about Danny's old 308mm setup and discoverd that you could get 280mm 4-stud discs, it was all then just a case of gettign the parts and seeing if it would all go together

    i have since moved onto a 330mm setup a bit bigger
    I still say that the 308mm was the best mod i did on the astra
