    i have been given a full set of seat leon fr calipers and carriers and was hoping to blast, paint and fit them to my 2004 2.0tdi sport.

    can anyone tell me if these are the same as whats fitted to my car? or if different will they fit?

    And is your car a 140 or 170?

    Well if there the same size golf gti brakes they fit iv just put some on mine.

    The golf gti's are 312mm

    Maybe google the disc size of the fr.

    The caliper and pad are the same on the 140 tdi and the golf the only difference Is the disc and carrier
