Front disc size ?

Hi was going to buy a set of discs from ebay , thought I would confirm they would fit my model so mailed seller detail , GT 1.9 lt , 170 bhp on a 2010 , they mailed me back saying " falls out of year range " , Does that make sense to anyone ? Did the discs change size in '10 ? Thanks for your help .

All GT except for the 3.2v6 use the 284mm x 22mm front discs.

At that price I would be pretty suspicious of the quality, will they stop you effectively, will they last effectively? Even with Christmas approaching, I'm not sure that i would skimp on braking. Actually, I would consider checking with your insurance company first tbh, uprated brakes are one thing, budget metal is another.

Brembo drilled discs don't cost £130 extra because they are a fashion brand you know!

Lucky miss I'd say, which coincidentally is what I wish for you if you fit cheap discs...

I would give them a miss too, not only are they too cheap they are cross drilled and cross drilled discs are more likely to crack in use.
