    mk5 1.6 design drums

    just wodnering if all 1.6 astra mk5 have drums on the rear, i looked at a 1.4 sport hatch today and noticed it had discs so im wondering why a larger, 5dr bigger engined car has drums rather than discs, could anyone enlighten me?

    thanks

    From what i've seen all the pre-facelift models upto 1.6 come with rear drums on the 5 door and with 4 stud wheels whereas all the 3 door models come with discs all round and 5 stud wheels as standard,shocking int it?

    i hate having drums on the rear (54plate 1.6 5dr 4stud)

    i know i was wondering whether a conversion could be done, or a large disc conversion to the front even?

    a guy at VX said the 280mm calipers (that we have are the same as the 308mm 5stud) so effectively if you can find a 308mm 4stud they should go on without any problems.

    Dunno if someone can confirm this or not?
