My bro in law has some brand new V6 brake callipers for sale, but they look huge, I wouldn't like to say if they would fit the Corsa.

it dpends on your 15" wheels, some 15's wont go over them, there is a lot of cav gsi owners who cant get the standard 15's over them, only way it too try them out. cally turbo calipers defo dont go under 15's

Well if anyone is interested in brand new V6 callipers, I can get a price on my bro in laws ones, he's got loads of them.
I didn't take a close look at them but they did look very big for a Corsa

you can get brand new v6 calipers discs and pads for 200 from www.v-tuning.com

or .co.uk and there 4 stud discs as all v6s were 5 stud so youd have to redrill the discs to fit ur corsa

and make up hub spacers as 5 stud models have a larger hub.
