    Hi

    I just need to know which other VAG cars will give me a set of direct fit front brake calipers/carriers to go on my 8P1 2.0TDI 3dr that will be an upgrade over my standard set-up +/- 312 brake discs too?

    Thanks for your help

    Add Leon Cupra to the s3/r32 spec.

    No mk4, mk1 TT dont fit as they are 5x100 hubs. Stick to anything thats 5x112 and 312mm and above and it should go on fine.

    I don't know this for definate but I think the caliper carriers from a 312mm Golf IV may well be the same as apart from the first 3 digits the rest of the part number is the same - that is if you use you existing caliper and new disks. That would convert your 288 to 312.

    If I can get a full set from a Mk5 are the rear brakes an upgrade too and I take it they will fit straight on to?

    Right I've struck a deal for the full set of calipers from a Mk5 Golf GTi. I know I will need some 312 discs and pads to match the calipers but do I also need the Dust Guards + brake lines from the GTI or can I use the ones already on my 8P1?

    Thanks for any help

    Too much pedal travel with the RS kit.
