I'd get genuine GM stuff. I think Mk3s are heavy enough to warrant 288s no matter what the engine. Also GM pads have tapered edges, so shouldn't squeal.

Old thread or not theres plenty of places still selling these `cheapo` discs so thought id share my experiances with them for anyone in future who actually wants to try some rather than listening to a load of brand snobbery.
Ive had the `cheap` discs for about 6 months now and have had no problem at all. Im using them with some ferrodo fast road pads that were 9 quid from on-line autosport or something and they`ve improved the braking no end. They`re a lot sharper and responsive.
Ive a 2.0 8v fitted which isn't slow and the brakes cope perfect even with fast road use.
I had the exact same setup on my mk2 cav I had before this mk3 and results were the same.
