    brakes set for 9-5 2.3t (2000)

    Hi guys.
    I just bought 9-5 and I'd like to replace brakes+discs and wondering which model to buy. This car is not for racing and even not for daily use. I guess it will be drove up to 5K km a year.
    I found on demon tweeks a kit of EBC yellowstuff and the diameter of the front disc there is 308mm whereas in other sources 288mm is more common.
    1. What is the standard correct size ? (rims are 16" right now)
    2. Can someone recommend on another kit (better if it will be cheaper) ?

    thanks a lot

    Here is the procedure:
    Front: http://photo.platonoff.com/Auto/2007...nt_Brakes/?all
    Rear: http://photo.platonoff.com/Auto/2005...kes_fixed/?all

    Size: Just order what you like for your year and model. The right size will be shipped to you.
    I did Abekabo Ceramic Pads and Brembo rotars 9 years ago and they have been great and with no dust.
    Not sure about the spelling here.

    Can someone tell me what is the correct size ?
    I found set of EBC (on EBCdirect site) front disks and pads: [FONT=Roboto, Arial, sans-serif]PD03KF1062 front (EBC yellowstuff). This disks are 288mm diameter and it seems to be the correct size and even fitted my vehicle according to EBCdirect.com but when I took this part number to deamon-tweeks it show me that it doesn't fit my vehicle.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Roboto, Arial, sans-serif]Whom I should believe to ?[/FONT]
