    Which model VAG cars will give me better brakes?

    Hi

    I just need to know which other VAG cars will give me a set of direct fit front brake calipers/carriers to go on my 8P1 2.0TDI 3dr that will be an upgrade over my standard set-up +/- 312 brake discs too?

    Thanks for your help

    No mk4, mk1 TT dont fit as they are 5x100 hubs. Stick to anything thats 5x112 and 312mm and above and it should go on fine.

    I don't know this for definate but I think the caliper carriers from a 312mm Golf IV may well be the same as apart from the first 3 digits the rest of the part number is the same - that is if you use you existing caliper and new disks. That would convert your 288 to 312.

    If I can get a full set from a Mk5 are the rear brakes an upgrade too and I take it they will fit straight on to?

    Right I've struck a deal for the full set of calipers from a Mk5 Golf GTi. I know I will need some 312 discs and pads to match the calipers but do I also need the Dust Guards + brake lines from the GTI or can I use the ones already on my 8P1?

    Thanks for any help
