Newbie to the forum, but you all seem like a friendly helpful bunch from what I've read so far - so I feel like I'm in good company
just picked up my BRD TDiQ 170 a few weeks back and desperately need to sort the brakes, and balancer shaft (mines a gear driven oil pump but still subject to wear on the shaft). Looking through the posts I can find on here it seems like A6 or 2.0T front calipers/carriers are a good choice. She's on 17's but came with a set of 16's and Dunlop Winter Sports 4D so whatever I do needs to sit under the 16's - anyone know max disc size?
if I go A6 calipers do I need to use C7 as I have a B7, or doesn't it work like that? Found some C6 calipers but I don't know if they'll just bolt straight on. It looks like I have 300mm discs fitted but they might as well be made of chocolate...scary how bad the brakes are.
I'd prefer to just swap calipers front and back, rather than carriers if possible, just due to budget - but if that's not going to work then carriers are fine. Just looking for pointers from anyone who's done this please, new to part numbers and don't have ETKA yet.
Thanks for any and all feedback
