Brakes c’est possible?
« on: 02 April 2021, 19:56 »
Hi Guys
I just got new suspension fitted to my Mk6 GTd which obviously means I’m compelled to drive much faster 🤣 at all times.....
Only ‘problem’ is the fairly ordinary brakes now seem just that, perhaps even, not that great. So,-
If I stick with the standard 17in Seattle alloys  what’s the biggest discs we can put on if I go the Porsche
caliper route and should (could) we go Cayenne rather than Boxster.
All tips and tricks gratefully received  :smiley: I have tried to ask the internet search Gods but to no avail.

Well well, not much info here nor reply’s from a Vag brake specialist.....
In case anyone’s interested I’ve bought a refurbed 312 set up and on next day off (Bank Holiday) I’ll fit it and report findings.
Obvs got dough burning a hole in pocket should anyone have spare Porsche/Brembo set up that will fit under 17 inch alloys they want to get rid of.

Last I read 312mm were the biggest you could go.

Change to 18s and you could go up to ~320-340mm depending on calliper and carrier set up.

I made this : ->

Cheers Slick, I’ve got the 312’s on my Ibiza Fr with its 16 inch wheels and spoke to one of the guys at Vagbremtech on Thursday who seemed to think we’d skweeze 345’s in the Golf...
I’m going to fit the 312’s (along with vbt’s braided hoses) next day off to see how it works/fits with a view to going bigger and Porsche with my bonus burning a hole in my pocket 🤪.
