Does anyone have a photo and more info on the Premium Brakes offered on the XR6T?

Much appreciated.

xr6t premium brakes

the rotors are 320mm x 32mm. same as hsv performance 2 pot brakes. calipers are c6 corvette. same physical dimensions as c5 corvette, gravity cast though, not squeeze cast. rotors are made in mexico, machined and grooved at harrop.
rears are standard. only blue calipers, and grooved rotors.

Yes, the XT and XR brakes are indentical and the same as on the Fairmont/Ghia.

The optional XR premium brakes are the same as those fitted standard to the GT/Pursuit except the calipers are painted blue on the FPV's, and black on the XR's.

The Brembos are optional on the GT and standard on the GT-p.

Cheers.

blame the bean counters

I choose to remain silent. Everything I say will be misquoted and used against me.
