    TT Caliper Carriers

    I understand it that you can fit these carriers and then 312mm discs onto the existing callipers and they will work, I'm going to do this soon as my discs are warped.

    Does anyone know where I can get the carriers from at a reasonable cost?

    Why not just put the 2.5TDi V6 180bhp carriers and discs on? They're 312mm.

    The 2.5 tdi a4? I only need the carriers and discs not callipers. Any idea where to get them?

    Are they a direct fit or do they need an adapter?

    Direct fit.Dont even need to change the flexi pipes.Not sure what size wheels you need but they fitted behind my old 18's.
    Standard discs.

    Look much better with these.

    Anyone know where I can get a set of these from, are they readily available?

    I need to replace my discs soon as they are knackered and I'd rather get a set of better ones. All ideas welcome!

    I bought my carriers from VAGPARTS, from memory including delivery they were something like 110, unlike the 160'ish the stealers wanted. Just check you have the right splash shield etc. I have part numbers if you need any clarification.

    hope this helps

    If in doubt go flat out
