    EPC doesn't list a rear drum for any 1.8 model.

    Something fishy about your car.

    Was it a 1.6 to start with?

    been a 1.8 sxi all its life, i was told that 52 plate onwards was discs but sum1 on here wth the same S reg 51 plate has drums,

    loads o wheels on 4 studs aswell so stud wise aint no much point in making them 5 studs, but if get some at a good price fair enough!!!

    no prices for conversion kits??

    To be honest the only reason to change to rear discs would be for looks, any benefits you get from fitting them will be minimal and not worth the while. Just find it strange that the 1.8 has drums, first I have seen this.
