I have a 1995 corsa 1.2 8v and i want to upgrade the brakes.I live in ireland and maybe in time i will change the engine but with the price of insurance here i can't.I just want bigger brakes at the moment.What brakes from other vauxhalls will fit straight on.Just calipers and discs.I don't want to have to change brake servos or anything else.

the bigger set up like the V6 and turbo all the disc u will buy from say Vauxhall or the scrappers will be 5 stud (5 wheel bolts where corsas a 4)
so its eather take them some where and get the re drilled for about 20 a disc
OR
go to a vauxhall specialist (V-Tuning etc) and buy and set of discs of them

I got the 'Hi-Spec' big brake upgrade for a cavvy gsi. Basically ya just need the 2.0 16v calipers, and the kit comes with the relocation bracket, pads and 285mm discs.

No need to upgrade the servo and they've stood up well to quite a few track sessions and with a set of braided hoses they've got a nice hard pedal feel.

i would reccomend, once ya go V6 or bigger get some stainless steel brake hoses like the goodridge ones, otherwise the pedal will feel really spongey, im actually waiting for my hoses to arrive so i can fit my V6's, ya can pick these up for 195, brand new calipers, pads and pre drilled disks from LMF
