Did 170bhp Golf V5's ever come with 288mm carriers?

    I recently won some carriers on eBay which were off a 2000 (W reg), 170bhp Golf V5. They have arrived but are 288mm carriers :slapped:

    Can anyone confirm whether or not the 170bhp models came with 288mm carriers because the guy is trying to tell me that it may have been a crossover model, which I don't really believe as surely the brakes couldn't have been either 288 or 312mm if it was a 170 model. It's not like something minor like door handle design or cup holders.

    He's offered me a refund less postage, but I was sold these as 170bhp V5 carriers, which I thought they must be 312mm as I've also read they have the vented rears too.

    Looking up discs for a V5, it could be either on earlier models, or 312mm only on 01 onwards.

    Thanks jojo, I thought it was 312s for a 170.

    Mikey, where did you lookup the discs? I looked on ECP but it just had 288s for either so didn't take much notice.

    Nope, 288s were on the 150hp not the 170
