    as above

    but u need the flexi hoses as VXR calipers use M12 banjos as opposed to M10 on all other models

    ideal time to fit some braided hoses - thats what i did

    either or

    OE VXR front rubber hoses

    or

    Aftermarket braided hoses designed for Astra/Zaf VXR *Camskill is usually the cheapest for HEL lines, personally i only needed the fronts so just got the pair from Courtenay


    the other end of the flexi (where it attaches to the solid brake pipe) is a standard M10 across all models
