Thinking of upgrading my brakes to 280mm G60 ones. Just wondering on an idea of how much I should be paying.

The car is an 8v Mk2 but already has 16v brakes fitted (done before I bought), does this mean it has the 16v hubs already, or can the 8v go to 16v with just carriers + calipers. Therefore I might need 16v hubs, calipers and carriers?????

Calipers, carriers and discs are all you need. It's possible to use the 16v calipers with G60 carriers but you need to get the slider pins machined to accept the 280mm discs 22mm width, the 256mm disc is 20mm wide. Probably best to get the lot though.

€200 - €250 would normally get you the calipers and carriers. Best to buy new discs and pads.
