    Easy to find out... Take a wheel off and use a tape measure.:rock:

    My 1.8T 163 has 312mm.

    Smiffy.

    I just noticed your cars on only 30k so you could still have the original discs on! Being a late B6 model it could have been fitted with either size at the factory so you will have to get the tape out.

    My car had just under 30k on the clock when I purchased it, now its on 80k:scared2: still runs like a dream though :kissmyrings:

    Love my avant. :)

    She is will be fine @ 80k just keep her happy and serviced she will give you another 100k......

    Really sorry though 1 last question......

    Are the 312mm disc's 5 or 10 stud ?

    I thought they were 5 stud but the guy @ Brembo said the discs I suggested to him,
    matched my model but were 10 stud ???? :think::think:

    The 10 stud discs will be correct.

    The discs have 2 different sets of 5 stud holes so that they fit cars with different pcd's (hole centres). Therefore Brembo can make 1 disc that fits many different models.

    Love my Avant too.
