    this may have been covered but i didn't find it on my travels.

    Is there a caliper carrier swap available that enables you to run larger discs ?

    my car is a 1.8t sport avant 2001 B5 chassis.

    You can fit S4 breaks into your 1.8 but you will need the full brake setup and also I think Sus arms or Sus legs

    ok
    does anyone know what calipers i'd need to buy specifically to fit 312 discs ?
    ie, TT or whatever or a part number would be ideal

    You need the carriers from a TT, and disks from a B6 A4.

    They're hard to get hold of though, as most breakers want to sell either the complete calipers for £££ or the complete braking setup (ie disks and pads etc too) as an upgrade for golfs for £££££

    I paid £50 for mine eventually.

    nice one for the info.
    I am pretty sure a mate of mine has the tt caliper carriers in his garage now i just have to convince him to sell me them.
