what brakes come on the 1.8 SRI?

Thinking of upgrading mine for something a little bigger. I haven't even got vented discs!

Just want to walk into Vaux and ask for the SRI ones and fit em myself.

Cheers

If you have the brakes off the 1.8 you are going to need new discs, calipers, pads etc. You might even need a new rear beam. I'd go with EBC pads and EBC grooved and drilled discs

Waste of money on a 1.2 corsa

Go for EBC or Black diamond discs and pads
