    IIRC they are lug mount not radial mount so the brackets and offset will most likely be no good and chances are the pistons will be wrong for the master cylinder too... there is a guide for VAG Mk4 platform brake upgrades in the stickies... stick to stuff that is known to work, it could save your life...

    true if they where any good there would be alot of people with them on at that prices! on the sticky it mentions the porkers brakes, have heard thay arnt that great and give poop pedal feel, whats the lastest thoughts on the 996 rears?

    yup, avoid 996 rears, 996 fronts are amazing though!

    Been running my 996 fronts since May now I think, and they're just incredible. I certainly wouldn't be without them now!
