    Need your car PR number. There are 5 different types of brake discs.

    My 05 2.0 tdi has a PR number 1ZE ( shown inside cover of service book )

    My size is 288x25mm ventilated.

    Cheers

    Sorry to pull up this old thread, does anyone know what size they are likely to be as some 312mm brakes have become available to me, the car is just a basic model. (The service book is currently 250 miles away lol)

    The same info as the service book is on a sticker in the spare wheel compartment under the boot floor.

    If that fails then all I can say is they are likely to be the same as mine !
