How much better are these to standard corsa 1.4 sport brakes?
Do they fit straight onto a Corsa B?
If so what year Meriva fits?
How much did you pay for yours?

Reason being im looking to upgrade brakes but not sure what to get, i want some that will just bolt straight on? What are my choices? Whats good?
