    Which size brakes?

    Hi guys,

    My car is due a service and i wanted to replace the brake disks and pads on the car...
    I have a 2.0 TDi 05 plate Sportback (sport model) and if i am right then this model has the smaller disks. (288mm i think)
    could i just buy the larger (312mm - Sline size) disks and fit them on as a direct replacement or would i need some other bits?
    I'm not looking to spend big money on it...

    any help is appriciated!

    To fit larger discs you will need a different caliper carrier.
    Is it a 140 or 170?

    I think you just need a set of caliper carriers and the disks/ pads from what I recall when upgrading mine, although I just got a set of mk5gti front calipers/disks/ pads and done a straight swap for the old ones. Not sure what a set of carriers costs alone cost

    I see a lot of people getting the ferrado's can't remember which one's and green or red stuff pads.

    I just stuck to OEM stuff with mine from eurocarparts. Done the job nicely IMO.

    The pads are the same between the 288 and 312 as they use the same caliper, it is just a different hanger that spaces it out to take the 312mm disc.
