100% agree with everyone, the 288 disks and calipers are the way to go......I cannot think how bad small disks would be as the 288 ones are just about OK as it is.

You will need BOTH the calipers and the caliper yokes remember.

Estate calipers do fit a saloon but there is no need for them.....

In this case a VIN won't help, as the OP is enquiring about upgrading to bigger brakes than originally fitted.

If you go to one of the big parts supply sites and enter the details for a V6 or HDI 110, it should give the details of the required parts. I think that the 288mm calipers may be scarce now.

I think I have a spare set of calipers but I dread to think what the cost of shipping to Norway would be!
