Good to hear just so people know the prices you posted for carrier plus calipers are not new! They cost a hell of a lot mroe than that new. I had to buy brand new calipers.


:whistle:

HELLO! That is why I posted the above, God it's like being at work I say something helpful and am ignored!
:ban:
I can tell you how much calipers are form a dealer as I bought them from Sere motors.

:lol: There you go mate! They do look good.

There are always sets going on Edition38 forum, ebay etc. You are best to shop around. New/stealers will be much more expensive! I will be upgrading to this set-up when my standard discs and pads need changing.

Mine were £70 for the carriers and calipers from a vw breakers after a bit o haggling. Then £13 for the red paint kit, £19 for the new "Bigg Red" caliper seal kit as I wanted to realy freshon everything up. Then lots of hard work cleaning the calipers . Had the carriers sand blasted for a fiver as no moving parts involved
£40 for fitting and £120 for the pads and discs so not to bad realy . Thanks Gooner for me pic .
Cheers all.
Semi limo tint on all windows next ecept fronts which will get the non piss taking shading . £100 all in will post pics asap

I think aimez was just comenting that she had said that my prices shown at start of thread that she had then added that these were used caliper prices only for someone to ask that exact question. Jf I'm wrong aimez then sorry but I think that's the line you were thinking along.
Most used caliper/ carrier kits are price ranged from i think somewhere around the £70 I paid to £160 if you buy them from eBay ready painted/refurbed.
Don't forget you can use golf mk 4 anniversay , golf mk4 v5 , and 4 moition carriers and calipers as they all will fit and used 312 mm brakes. Or just good old 99-06 audi tt brakes.
