I have the LCR Brembo 4 Pot and 323mm Disk set up and too and it is amazing! Paid about ?720 for mine 3 years ago. However be aware that you are Very limited as to what wheels you can have (though you will be ok with Ani Wheels).

If you are going to spend the money then I would recommend getting bigger dics to make them look better. How about the modified R32 kit:

TTS - what size are the discs in that kit? and how much could you do the kit supplied only?

Surely the brembo 4pots would work better than a set of std r32 brakes??? although the discs DO look bigger and thicker....

Hi

They are 323mm x 28mm with a four pot Brembo caliper, the discs are brembo and so are the pads. This set up is a lot better than the R32 discs/calipers. Granted the R32 setup is bigger, you can't beat the look of a brembo red caliper though [;)] Four pots will always perform better than the 2 pot R32 caliper.

Also the pad/disc compounds are superior to many of the R32 upgrade pads/discs as there are limited options.

Best price to forum members ?870 plus ?12.00 Uk mainland postage.

4 week wait for kit, although I have a TT kit coming next week, that we can source the Golf Hoses seperately for as this is the only difference between TT/Golf.

Cheers

Justin

I also agree that the 4 pot would defo be better than the 2 Pot, but do you really need them that good

I would guess that the "Floating" Disc set up of the uprated R32 kit would be better than the one piece Brembo disc

I personally don't like the rectangular look of the calipers, have you looked at the ECS Tunning Porsche set ups... gives you the better floating disc set up and Porsche Brembo 4 pots

Here's a picture of the ones I had... they work very well and the caliper looks and the shape is so much better, over the GT Brembo calipers:

Think they cost about ?1,100 from here: http://www.jbrperformance.co.uk/

MMMMMM!!!!!! I do like the porsche set up on your car! I cant really justify spending that much, not atm anyway!

Is there anywhere that does the std 312mm disc with drilled/grooves on them?
