              why not paul!

              one of my mate won a set of vxr monaro calipers and pads on ebay for about £50 after some mock up work and some custom carriers they are now paired to a set of used astra vxr discs and squeezed behind his gsi rims.total cost,about £300.i know someone else who has a set of porsche 996 brembo calipers on his,which was even easier to do apparently.

              why not be different if you have the time to look around,good luck to you matey.
