I think Porsche 6 pot brakes from Tuareg are cheap and good. Rs2 calipers are overpriced.

Does that mean that the TUV regs mean you have to go back to 280mm discs and the oem front calipers, or can you go 'back' to 323mm and Porsche calipers from an RS2 ?

Separately, consider late model S2 Coupe rear lights that have red lines across the white reversing lights.

Obviously front ellipsoids with HID or LED.

kind regards.

Funny thing with TUV: you can downgrade to vaccuum booster but can't upgrade brakes?

Got a new jack today.. And spent some quality time dismantling the drivetrain. Next up is to get all the bushes out and send the propshaft for balancing. Waiting for some parts to arrive from akmotorsport.net and sending some parts for sandblasting..
