308 brakes from a vec b will fit on a corsa b, five stud hubs or redrilled disc. 16" wheels.

I expect you'll need the carriers from a Meriva VXR.

Whats wrong with the 256mm brakes?

get some decent pads and a bigger servo,

whats wrong with the 2.0's ?
bigger will get more pedal travel,

corsa D servo could be a good shout as they brake fucking well, and use the 256mm set up

never looked in to it myself, mondeo servos used to be a good replacement,

i might look in to it, if a corsa d servo could be fitted would be a huge difference, the brakes in the D's are amazing, and are the 256mm set up, with abs though
