    Hi.
    It is my first post to your club.
    I want to put bigger rear brakes on my 4WD Leon 1.8T 20V.
    I now have 256mm vented discs and I want to put the ECS rear big brake system with 308mm rotors.

    http://www.ecstuning.com/stage/edpd/pagebuild_v2.cgi?make=Volkswagen&engine=1.8T&model=337/20AE&submodel=&category=Braking&subcategory=ECS%20Stage%201R ,

    but I am afraid that they will ruine the balance of the front- rear system.
    This, because a friend with a S3, put bigger discs, and told me that when was braking the car, the rear part was chasing the front( brake distributor did not work).
    Any idea?

    Not sure how easy it would be to do, but a variable brake balance valve would allow easy setup and balancing of front versus back so could be an option.
