New Brakes.
« on: 11 November 2021, 06:26 »
I’m looking for some advice on a new set of brakes both front & rear (disc & pads)
Car is sitting at 305bhp and I’ve no plans on increasing this and it won’t be used for track days just normal driving (is that possible in a GTI?) what’s the pros & cons of drilled or grooved disc?

Thanks I’m advance.

You have not said if you have the standard mk6 brakes or not? Larger discs and calipers would be first on my list with that amount of power even if you do not often do spirited drives.
Carbon Grey, 2010 Bluetooth and voice fitted a few VCDS mods still a comfortable family car. Red Scirocco 2011 twin charger stage 1 - enjoyable drive now gone.  White 2016 Polo GTI (roller skate on steroids) replaced with an Indium Grey 2019 7.5 GTI PP.

Sorry, just standard brakes on the car at the moment, don’t plan on changing the callipers unless that’s needed.
