    I have some Greenstuff - brand new, still in box bought them for my MK4 but they didn't arrive in time to be fitted so ended up going OEM. If interested drop me a PM.

    There are alot of better brands than Mintex out there, but if you are on a budget they will be ok. I have always found Apec to be the best standard replacement. As for the bearing, im not sure. I know that some VWs/Audis have the rear hub on the disc with the bearing inside, wether it applies to your car or not i dont know.

    I'm pretty sure your car is the later rear set up where the hub stays and the change the disc only, in a similar way to the front.

    The Mk3 Golf indeed did require new bearings with a change of rear disc.
