    Suggestions please for break upgrades with minimal work, I hear stories of a larger disc keeping the same caliper and using different carriers? My disks are looking a little whacked, needs new ones next time the pads come out.

    Ill have a search but google wasnt being too helpfull just now :(

    Thanks.

    Easiest upgrade from your 288mm set up is up to 312mm.

    As you have heard you need 312mm disks and 312mm carriers the caliper and pads are reused.

    Cars such as mk4 golf R32, v6 4mo, gti anni all come with the 312mm carriers. Few sellers on ebay selling new ones for 150 the pair I think, or look out for 2nd hand but not many people split them from the calipers.
