Yep, silicon forge hose ordered and hunting for decent price 007p recirc

Brake wise I have 288 mm discs

The the Audi tt skoda vrs bora 4motion Gti etc all share 320 mm brakes

Done my research and the the cars above all have the same calipers and pads as my 1.8t beetle
So the only difference is the discs and carriers, so I'm gonna hunt the scrap yards for the carriers and order some new cross drilled discs with ebc pads Smile

And easy conversion

For the rear I might hunt golf anniversary rear discs as there bigger again or I'll get cross drilled rear discs with ebc pads
