    Which cars do we rob the 312mm brakes from other than mk4 Golf GTi's???

    Are they straight bolt ons with the correct carrier etc???

    Are there any other options apart from these for the b5 without changing to ally uprights etc?

    Cheers for info.

    na TT carriers will do too but they are hard work to get
    i got my MK5 gti brakes for £75 inc calipers which are better than the stock ones
    only problem is they are red!

    Golf/A3 calipers typically have smaller pistons than A4 ones. Not compared mk5's right enough but Mk4 certainly do.

    The 312mm carriers you want come from either TT's or S3's as well as some mk4 golf special editions and the mk4 R32.
