I've read a few threads on brake upgrades but they seem to follow a simlar theme in either replacing the 288mm wil something altogether better, ir Brembo or using W3 / TT brakes. Is the 312mm route a csea of disks, pads and carriers or do you need te caliper as well. I kow that many vag cars share the same calipers but have different size disks and ist the carriers that need changing? I have a 1.8 TQ (180) and 288mm isn't enough when hard braking. Had 288mm on the wee Fabi vRS and that was just about bareable. I'm not planning on going mreo than the std 180hp so I think 312mm should be fine just need something better than the medioce brakes it has just now (my 177hp 320d has mahoosive brakes by comparison and stops so much better). Any advice is welcome.
