How easy are V6 4 stud brake kits to fit.

I know PVD sell them but i don't know what the quality will be like but Courtenay and Regal do these kits: -

Courtenay Brake Disc Conversion Kits
16 grooved 288mm disc conversion with calipers 395.00 including VAT

Regal Turbo Spec Brake conversion
Corsa/Nova (min 15" wheels) 4 Stud 280mm turbo sized discs with 2.5 v6 vectra calipers and pads. 80% more braking power = 300.00

ALSO OPTION TO UPGRADE TO CROSS DRILLED AND GROOVED DISCS KIT =380.00

dont know how they can say minimum 15" wheels as it all depends on the type of wheel you are running. my cav gsi calipers rubbed on the inside of my 15s when i stuck new pads on. caused by the shape of the inside of the wheel so i had to shave the legs that hold the caliper pin down slightly to stop them rubbing so be careful and make sure that they will fit before you buy them
