Unhappy EVO 3 Brake Upgrade

Hi All,

First time posting on the forum which i find to a real wealth of knowledge. Please bear with me.

I know there are plenty of topics dealing with the the EVO 3 front brake upgrade, but my questions are simple ones (I hope!)

1. Is it possible to simply fit the front twin pot EVO 3 calipers, but retain my standard Volvo carriers with standard 281mm Volvo discs? If so, do I then simply fit EVO 3 pads?

2. If I fit the EVO 3 discs as well, will my standard Volvo carriers still be OK?

I know the EVO discs are slightly smaller at 276mm, but I have a brand new pair of 281mm discs and wouldn't want to leave them sitting around if they'll do the job.

Thanks for any advice.
