    I have three options:

    Option 1:
    Diameter: 256mm
    Height: 48.3mm
    Thickness: 12mm

    Option 2:
    Diameter: 253mm
    Height: 51.3mm
    Thickness: 10mm

    Option 3:
    Diameter: 282mm
    Height: 48.2mm
    Thickness: 12mm

    Checked boot and PR number is missing/no sticker there with vehicle info.

    Thank you.

    Cheers. I was using a website called nextdaybrakes and it listed these three options for an 8P1.

    Thanks @marknjayne...

    Running 240hp... do I need grooved/slotted?? The brembo prices on nextdaybrakes for solid/internally vented discs look too good to be true...

    Reading around the slotted vs solid debate and a lot of sites are now saying that these days solid discs are quite good that they don't suffer from gas build up like they used to back in the days...

    I don't do a lot of heavy braking bar one particular busy town I go to on the weekends and people cross the road wherever they feel like it.
