Vr senator brakes

Hi everyone, just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on where I could find out what brakes came out on the 185 vr senator as opposed to the vr senator 215 kw, I know what they are just what a tech article or sim on the brake set up on 185kw if this makes any sense.

Reason being I sold a set of 185 brakes to a guy who now states they are not hsv brakes as he was wanting twin pots which only came out on the 215 model I thought.

Would like to find proof of this to set him straight!

Cheers

185i's had normal v8 brakes, same that came on all vs v8's. 215's had the better brakes.

Craig, this may help you out....From the HSV Website


http://www.hsv.com.au/e3/see/Classic...&Model=Senator


Second to last feature in Exterior-
"the unique twin oval exhausts and the revamped larger brake installation are other features that suggest the 215kW engine is fitted"


As you said, only the 215 had the larger brakes fitted
