    You'll need the discs, callipers with pads,the calliper carriers and the bolts that hold the callipers to the carriers.
    Then you need some suitable brake lines...either SEAT ones, or some aftermarked braided jobbies.

    You get it all in the Brembo GT Jr kit...or individually from SEAT or a breakers.

    You just bolt it all on, bending the inner dirt shields out of the way a bit...and you have to short out (I think) the brake pad warning sensor wires to prevent the DIS showing low brake pads all the time.
