    hi I am in the process of upgrading my front and rear brakes with a big brake kit. I have read about all the useual big brands like brembo, Porsche kits and others., but have not found any info on CompBrake kits. I find there 4pot 350x32mm ( http://compbrake.co.uk/shop/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=3634 ) is selling at a very good price compared to all other big brake kits. Has anyone used this kit? it would be very interesting to have some info from anyone using this kit..
    cheers:beerchug:

    Ive not used these but i too am looking at upgrading my rears .
    Im doing my own kit using S4 rear discs. i will be redrilling th PCD to 5x100 and then machining some caliper mounting brackets to lift the caliper out to sit correctly on the bigger disc.

    Can you get a 2 piece disc set up for the rears? Either the same size as standard or a little larger?

    CompBrake has a 333x20 2 piece vented kit for the rear using the OEM caliper, but I think that might be a little to extreme..

    don’t know about the rear, but ill probably be going for the front 350x32mm kit that has 2 piece rotor at a very attractive price..
    and by the looks of things ill probably be the first one trying them..!!:unsure:

    My rears are 2 piece disks with spaced out standard calipers. I did it for looks than performance, it's overkill, but hey, my car stops pretty well, and some say the rears look bigger(308mm) than the fronts! lol :cool:

    Caney over on ttforum.co.uk is running a compbrake setup on his 400bhp TT, might be worth pm'ing him and seeing how he is getting on with them. He previously had a porsche setup iirc so should be able to give you a comparison mate.

    No, they are a bit lighter than the OEM rear disks if I remember correctly, nothing major on weight saving. As mentioned before, it's more bling than performance, unless you have Big Turbo power.

    So defianetly lighter then? I just want them for the weight saving aspect more than anything, cant afford togo BT now for a while :crying:, my savings have took a big hit due to people not being able to drive

    Ever so slightly, the ECS items are bigger remember, I would say they weigh almost the same so little is the difference.
