    Bought them from a member on here. Not sure if there is a 'conversion kit' to speak of, you simply need the discs/calipers from a 4-stud Astra MK4 with rear discs, and a new handbrake cable to fit the mounting point on the discs.

    Expect to pay ~£75 to £100 for the discs/pads/calipers and another £20+ for the handbrake cable. Sometimes the rear brake lines will connect directly to the new calipers, other times you may need to re-crimp different ends on, or run new lines. It purely depends on what you have now and what you buy.
