Default s80 and 850 brake discs

hi all new here, I currently have a 1995 850 t5 and am thinking of buying a 1999 s80 t6. Are the front discs interchangeable. I ask because I recently changed to performance discs on the 850, standard size, 5 stud andthe s80s are warped. Fingers crossed. Thanks in advance.

need to get a brake job on my 2002 S80 and was just wondering what people have tried. The dealer is telling me to get all new Volvo parts and I am inclined to do so becuase I got 60,000 plus out of the lsat ones. with no complaints Is there better product out there that anyone has had experience with? Always looking for less brake dust. I would appreciate any info on this matter. I am not against speniding more for a better product than Volvo.
thx
Rooger B.

go on www.fcpgroton.com and www.eeuroparts.com. order the brembo (OEM) or zimmerman (OEM) rotors, and you can go with any ceramic pad.. many people here love the akebono euro pad, others love the PBR/Axxis Ultimate Ceramic. Jurid and Febi Bilstein also make excellent pads...
Mate all that to a top quality fluid such as ATE Superblue DOT4 Racing.. and you are good to go
