    312mm Brakes - 57mm Piston

    Hi,

    Does anybody know the part number for the calipers from the Mk4 era that had the 57mm piston instead of the 54mm piston?

    Does the 3mm make a big difference in reality?

    Thanks

    It was the a4 calipers I think that had 57mm pistons. Better off going for a brembo setup.

    the larger piston will give a longer pedal....
