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

    again ebay for some dimpled/grooved discs, going to use the r32 calipers for now and then see if i can fit my porsche calipers to the r32 carriers and if not get custom carriers machined, either that or il just flog the porsche calipers lol just needed to get brakes sorted before gti fest

    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 :)
