    Are the 2.0t front brakes bigger than the 2.0 TDI 140?

    I passed one today and the disks looked bigger and the callipers looked smarter. My wheels dwarf the tiny brakes on my car and I'd like to upgrade as it will be new pad time soon!

    I'm pretty sure they are bigger disks than mine then. Any chance you could take a pic? I'm changing the lot if they are better.. The brakes seem to let my car down.

    Thanks for that. I'll send an email and ask the question.

    Do the quattro brakes fit the 2wd's though?

    most scrapies do charge vat as they can claim it back if their vat registered

    hmmm I am not sure...means HMRC gets paid twice for same item.
    I think its only applicable to new items.
    If anyone buys parts from that link I would ask - could be paying 1/5 over the odds so maybe negotiate a reduced price ??

    Those brakes you have are nice.
    I read somewhere that my Spec Ed should have drilled discs also...doesnt.... :-(
    Not sure hopw big my calipers are though..will have to check
