OK so completely and utterly confused.

The car is due new disks and pads, the rear have been done but the front well, this is where the confusion starts.

Standard fitment for the car is diameter wise 278mm but the ones I have are 333mm (theyre quite corroded so might be more or less).

The suspension is standard, so's the hubs and the pads but yet they dont fit!!!

Can anyone advise?

Thanks in advance

I have absolutely no idea, the discs were on the car when I got it, I can tell that they're after market though :-/. I haven't had it to a garage as yet.

Have you taken them off and looked for any part numbers or something of the such.? If they've got 'FoMoCo' on them they're Ford, but I assume you already know that :P

That could be the Mountune 4-pot big brake upgrade retails for £1300 -

if so, discs and pads will probably not be cheap, and if cost is a priority, you may be better putting it back to stock

The Mondeo mk3s and 4s have 5 - studs as does the mk2 Focus  (so the discs don't fit the Fiesta, that has 4 studs)

 

The mk1 Focus and mk1/2 Mondeo has 4 studs - but the ST200 only has 278mm discs, the Focus ST170 has 300mm front discs, along with the Mondeo mk3 calipers, is a favorite conversion

 

probably the Mountune big brake upgrade or similar, due to the size.

I got the 300mm conversion on myn and you notice the diffrence. It annoys alot of people when you outbrake them or only have to tap your brakes around ;) plus they fill the wheel up pretty good on a mk6 zetec s ;)

Its not totally out of the question, especially in motorsport,  here is an evo8 with AP 8-pot calipers, and  378x40mm discs (from a C4 WRC)

Most drivers dont really need them on the road, though IMO

Exactly what I mean. For road use why would you bother spending all that cash, for a track car or something fair enough.
