    usr1449 are the disc part number just make sure as there listed under astra 2.0 turbo (240) bhp not vxr so some people cant find the part
    01604 583344 ring these its ebc but the trade department they will put you through to public sales mate and to be honest id go for there yellow stuff pads as well see if they do you a deal as i say the mintex pads on mine squeak badly

    there not particularly loud just i had them a few years ago on my old redtop astra and they were crap as they started to get tiny fractures on all the dimples so i thought id try the new slotted ultimax discs and they are a lot quieter in comparison

    Ive found the ebc drilled/grooved discs to be good in combination with yellow stuff pads

    Jase, I arranged a special price with Demon Tweeks for the full range of EBC discs - iirc its 110+vat for either Black Dashes which I have or the Turbo Grooved for the VXR Astra, both work well with OE pads

    Do you want the group buy link mate ?

    ps> Tarox are very good too, but expensive
