    As far as i know they dont yet list them as i contacted EBC about 6 wks ago and they could not supply the fronts only the rear discs.

    I bought the courtney grooved discs, and there pretty pretty good with the yellow ebc pad set up. EBC discs on the rear.

              thanks for the link vxr bad boy.

              Reading the item description, it doesn't atually specify the make of discs, just says they're performance 40 groove discs. Only time EBC is mentioned is when refering to the pads. Are they deffo EBC discs?

                  The 16G is just refering to the discs been grooved and the number of grooves on the disc. The rear discs are smaller with less grooves because they are doing less work and generating less heat than the fronts which do most of the work.

                      yeah just sent an email to EBC Brakes Direct and got this reply...

                      Part number you will require depends on the Bhp your Astra produces. We have new listings for 2005- for all the 170, 200, and 240 Bhp models, but unfortunately we are still waiting for the turbo grooved versions to be manufactured. If yours is a 240 Bhp, part number you will require will be GD1449; Vented, 5 bolthole, 321mm diam, 44mm high, 28mm thick at new disc, with an ETA of around 6 weeks.

                          I researched the discs in some depth before i went for the courts disc.

                          EBC do not do a disc for the vxr front they do how ever do a rear disc.

                          FACT!
