    Maybe not for the rear, just fit something else like Yellowstuff on the rear

    Yes same as Ry, fit yellow stuff and standard discs . I went for the Courtney grooved rear discs to match the front k sports, and fitted braided rear hoses

    That sounds like a class set up

    I have the Vectra VXR rear brakes on mine, a vast improvement over the astra setup, normally only notice it when really hard braking as the brake bias is more front than rear.
