If they are Vectra pads, they won't fit 284mm calipers.

I've got some little used Cav/Calibra pads here (that I was sold as Vectra 288 pads) if you want a swap.

the 288 pads have much larger pad area, so will last longer and dissipate heat better.

They won't fit mate as they are the same as you have already!

I run all 288s/308s, and sounds like you do too, so they have sent you the wrong ones.

96> Calibra Turbo and V6 use the Vectra 288 Calipers and pads.

That is a picture of the 288/308 pad.

iirc... Mark has mentioned before that the 288mm discs will fit the 284mm calipers.
