I like the red accents on the front grill and calipers on GTIs.  :smiley:

Right. They're fine now that you made me think about the front calipers.  :laugh:

Can you just buy the GTI PP/mk7 R/Clubsport/S3/Cupra front calipers and fit Brembo Sport 340 mm discs for TTS? :signLOL:

 It's a light and cheap enough setup and much stronger than the factory fitted brakes. No problems with wheels clearance too. :wink:

Can I get lighter discs for the Porsche turbo calipers?  :signLOL:
I'm just going to stick with my Porsche set up and going to get a stage 2+ this week and done with it for now!!! :doh: need to get my priorities straight first as I've spent way too much on crap to last me a lifetime  :sick:
You can if that's what you want (they're not that heavy). Contact Reyland or Vagbremtechnic, for example.

might just get a set made up at a later date as I've forked out over £300 for reyland ones under two weeks ago and they were a at least 2kg heavier than the original ones I got with the revo set up.
Do you know what other discs apart from ML fit the Porsche turbo Caliper and not mega £££ because those ML are stupidly heavy  :sick:

Thanks  :drinking:

No, I don't. All single piece discs with 350 mm and the specs you need (which means from ML450) are all really heavy, 13 kg (at least).

Only 2 piece discs will make the setup lighter but they're much more expensive to get, as you already know.

Your car's always in bits! But I quite like the understated look too :)

Had to be done as I was fed up looking at the dull front but now it's a glossy look and I really like it  :grin:

I assume you'll be removing the rear GTI badge as well?

It'll be one of the quickest GT Sports around
