    No you need the right stud count otherwise your wheels and brakes won't fit back on

    If you have a 4-stud car then you need 4-stud hubs.

    Nope - the 5-stud discs start at 280mm which is larger than the 256mm 4-stud ones, so you'd need the full setup:

    Discs
    Pads
    Calipers and caliper carriers
    Hub carriers and hubs

    You can't keep anything from the 4-stud setup beyond the brake lines themselves.

    Expect to pay ~£150+ for the front and to put discs on the rear is the same again. Need new handbrake cable too.
