        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.

                      Was much modification needed to fit them?

                          Have managed to find a set of DS2500 for the rear so will be using them

                          Is tempting to get the bigger set of rear brakes but money could be spent on better things

                            Nope, just get the kit with the caliper carriers and braided lines and you should be good. Some people modify the stone guard on the rear but I just removed them on mine.
