    Id want to hear from someones whos fitted them

    Main concerns would be do Brembro compatible pads fit the units, how easy is it going to be to get carriers or how much will you spend getting some fabricated and then how well will they work. Need to be careful with caliper size as well, always remember you may have clearance issues, especially if they mount different. I know the Brembros fitted to Fiats were often bought by VAG boys for fitting to Golfs as a cheaper option and they were a total nightmare to fit and working properly

    Brakes and Tyres are two main areas Id NEVER look for a cheaper unproved option on, doenst matter how fast you can go if you cant stop

    Oh and obvioulsy dependant on how big they actually are, they may dimish what little pedal feel there already is, so may need to fit a bigger master-cylinder too

    ok good points, i just thought they look identicle to the ones from the cupra r's so maybe could used the same mounting brackets as them?
