    IIRC they are lug mount not radial mount so the brackets and offset will most likely be no good and chances are the pistons will be wrong for the master cylinder too... there is a guide for VAG Mk4 platform brake upgrades in the stickies... stick to stuff that is known to work, it could save your life...

    rears crap as said, but the fronts are good though just a bit more expensive

    yup, avoid 996 rears, 996 fronts are amazing though!

    Been running my 996 fronts since May now I think, and they're just incredible. I certainly wouldn't be without them now!
