Not at all. The MkV GTI has 312mm discs as standard which is what many MkIV owners here upgraded to.You have got to help me out here - are the brakes on the GTI inadequate in some way, is this not safety issue?
Hmmm did he ever publish prices for them though, the 343 conversion required new calipers though didn't it?Sadsack if you want a lower cost route to better braking, the 345mm Audi A3 3.2Quattro discs fit, as do the 312mm from the GTI. Foxy has done the research and has part numbers etc.
I think you'll find that you can upgrade to 312mm discs from the GTI, retaining your existing calliper but using a larger calliper carrier to mount it further out. Foxy has done the upgrade (although he snaffled the GTI brakes complete from VW Racing). He posted a detailed thread but I have no chance at all of finding it on the forum in its current form. PM him for details. Its basically the same principle as the MkIV upgrade but with MkV bits, which as you have established, are different.I've been looking to upgrade mine to 312mm discs, I have some TT calipers, which were used on a Mk4, however the mounting holes seem to be too close together for the Mk5.
Would be grateful if anyone knew what bits to use.
As I mentioned above, Foxy has all this information so I suggest you send him a PM.Has anyone followed this up for the Audi A3 3.2 conversion? Im interested in using the A3 brakes but need to know a full list of the parts that Id need to order.
I can't see why not, but remember there is likely some difference between 2wd and 4wd drive car setups - as per the Mk4s........so, in a nutshell, get the rears off the 312mm 2WD setup to go with the 334mm frontsCheers Foxy, are the rears equally compatible? Im thinking of getting the full A3 3.2 Quattro setup.....
