if you do get a set of VXR brakes sent over and find they work really well, then you might be able to work out getting a large number of the parts sent over here, which would be helpful to all of us.
While the Aura, Vectra, and 9-3 are all on Epsilon I, each vehicles platform couldn't be more different. Unlike Epsilon II, Epsilon I is not a unified platform. There is American Epsilon I, Opel Epsilon I, and Saab Epsilon I. No version can be assembled in each other plants. No Malibu's will be rolling down the line in Sweden. No 9-3's will be rolling down Fairfax.

The Aura and Vectra have nothing in common besides a common front end design. They share nothing else and nothing is interchangeable.
