if you want new parts then your looking at £1200ish to put together your own kit with porsche calipers being the most expensive part (theres a porsche spares website that sell the exact calipers, new for £400 each), i priced up the job last month but never went through with it, you can buy kits from the likes of awesome for £800 but they dont come with pads.

As for the full job done for £500, you might have done yours for £500 mate but that doesnt nessesarily mean eveyone can.

ok mate, but yer am after second hand ..
No worries mate, i didnt mean to piss on anyones chips but when i priced up all new bits last month the prices were something along these line:

calipers (porsche genuine) £400 x 2
Carriers & hoses £200 (from awesome)
Discs (312mm drilled & grooved) £100
Pads £94 (carbon composite performance items)
Dot 5.1 fluid £12 (for 1litre)

And if buying from ebay do a search on here for the exact calipers you need so you can cross reference the part numbers and as james walker has said be careful fitment wise if you cant find the numbers because its rear calipers you need.

£500-600 is a bargain mate, it was the price of the new calipers that frightened me:wtf:

However i think that if i go hybrid next year i'll run a cupra R off the road and steal there's :D

Yeh they dont look like brembo ones though, look like remanufactured. Hoses, James said Bill does them so drop him a PM or post in his section Badger5 and his username is Ibizacupra.

they are the right carriers yes in the ebay link. same as what i have

youll pickup the porsche setup cheaper thn the oem vag brembos anyway.

does the fr have 312mm discs, think it does, is it petrol? if diesel think they have 288mm discs

youll need oem 312mmx25mm discs to fit.
