Brakes upgrade
« on: 14 February 2021, 11:23 »
Hi guys. Recently had my ed35 mapped so was wanting to know if I should be upgrading the brakes to handle the extra power? If so what upgrade (brakes/discs)should I be looking at? Thanks in advance.

I haven't replied till now as i thought others with experience would have.
Im not sure if the ed35 has the normal gti brakes?
If so a common upgrade is to fit the R brakes or leon cupra ones.
Current VWs = Mk6 GTI,  Mk1 GTI,  Mk1 Leon.
I should have bought a CSS in 2016.

What size are the R brakes or what options of size do you have to go bigger? Can you just put bigger discs on? Thanks
