    You will need R32 disks, carriers and calipers for the conversion.

    100% the Porsche calipers won't fit on the R32 carriers, totally different in the way they mount.

    EBC now do plain replacement R32 front discs, I think they are somewhere around £145 per pair....so a definite cheaper option than genuine R32 discs. I will be using these when I eventually get around to fitting my R32 front brakes!!

    thanks mate, as i said it will be something i may look at, but sounding like im gonna need custom carriers and they aint cheap, so more than likey i will flog the calipers, should pay for the r32 setup :)

    thanks for the replies, will have it all fitted for pod in april fingers crossed
