    Will the rear calipers from a B5 Passat/Mk4 Golf fit my existing carriers/pads/discs? Need to replace mine and the Passat ones look cooler.

    The passat ones are prob a direct fit, hard to say without seeing them.

    I would suspect the Passat ones are Alloy and yours are cast iron. If that's the case the hoses won't fit at a minimum

    Correct, they are alloy. I need a rear brake hose anyway so may as well replace both. Thanks for info.

    I seem to recall mk4 golf alloy calipers looked the same as the alloy a4/passat calipers but the handbrake attachment was the other way round.
