Brake upgrade....advice please.

4 posts in this topic

My Golf is due its 40000 mile service and I am wanting to get new discs and pads all round, however having to dip in my pocket for this I am thinking of spending abit more to have a brake upgrade (especially now that it has been AMD'd), does anyone have any recommendations?

I am not wanting to spend silly money, around £500, also I want the calipers in black.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers.

an easy upgrade is to fit Audi TT front discs and carriers, they are 312mm dia and you don't have to disturb the hydraulics.....not certain about wheel size, I think you need 17" for clearance ?

if you want to change to 4-pots [black]...have alook at Wilwood...but I think it will go over £500 with discs & pads

cheers

I have ended up going for a set of EBC discs and pads, drove down to Demon Tweeks yesterday and got a keen price.

Before deciding on a set make sure you shop around first, went to a local garage and they tried charging nearly twice as much for the upgrade.
