    Re: brake shield mod

    Can I ask what mod you are reffering to ?
    Just wondering why you felt the need to upgrade the disc size as well ? Having taken my 2.5 Tdi Quatrro on track last weekend - The brakes where the only thing that performed well on track.

    Re: brake shield mod

    i did the 312mm brake upgrade months ago. i added the weather shields which prevent the crap braking in the wet ( as on audiworld tech section) some people questioned wether it would fit with the 312mm discs and it does.

    i upgraded the disc size becasue the 288mm ones were quite frankly rubbish stopping from high speeds on the motorway.

    Re: brake shield mod

    Did you buy the brake shields? Or are they standard?

    I did the 312mm upgrade a while ago and can't remember if my car had them and its too clod to run out and have a peek just now.

    I got them from the stealer, they were really cheap actually (about 10 from memory). When we had a look on there computer they werent listed as fitted to any model, only the tiny shield they put on standard which i can't see does anything but they have the same part number.

    If you thought the 288mm discs were crap from high speeds I would hazard a guess there was a fault with your brakes somewhere ( Discs / pads / fluid ) As the ones on my car are fierce at high or low speeds

    well they weren't crap, just fade far to easily.
    try slamming the brakes on full from 80mph and then tell me that they dont fade!!!!
    the 312mm ones last a lot longer before they fade.

    Brake fade is down to pads / fluid - Not discs
