Yes they do. You will also need longer caliper bolts and collared nuts for tie rods / ball joints

Thanks. I'm running TTRS calipers with 340mm TTS discs. I'll be replacing ball joints for new. Do I buy passat ball joints?

Thanks :happy2:

I'm eager to remove, and check the wiring tomorrow as well.  I was in a rush to do the swap.
All 12 buttons work, except for the horn in my case.

Front normally has that mount in the eBay link, rear is just flat bumper -
Personally I would just stick the plate onto the bumper, just get genuine 3M foam pads

I just swapped a 12-button MK6 Golf steering wheel in place of my 8-button MK5 Golf steering wheel. The swap went well, and all 12 buttons work. My issue is that the horn button does not work. I had swapped over the steering wheel control module from the stock ***AQ model to the ***CD model as it supports lin 1.3 and 2.0. I also replaced my old revision-C clock-spring with a new on

On a cold engine, the car does its jumping revs to 2000rpm and down to 400rpm and cuts itself out, on a hot engine it runs and you can even drive it. The engine code

Fault code P129F

Hi, recently this fault code P129F came up. Under full load the car starts to misfire, scanned it again and cylinder misfire detected P0300 with code P0304 cylinder 4 misfire, driving normally the car doesn't misfire or anything drives perfect it's only under load, has anyone came across this before?

Damn, I wish Torqbyte had the PM4 when I got the PM3. Or maybe the PM4 'was' available and I just didn't know it could do the same as the PM3 but also 'ELIMINATES' the oem PWM/controller and can run two LPFP's without the need to run the second pump off of the boost. Yes, both APR and GIAC have second pump kits that work off of a boost switch. I had spoken to Torqbyte in the past a

Circa 4 to 5 k of use over the past 15 months (November 2019) and other than small installation scratches on the main pipe assembly and a missing rubber retaining strap due to the rubber perishing (I ended up just using cable ties, which I'll supply), the intake kit’s fine.

    I have had these for over 10 years and have since sold on my Edition 30 , and I never ever fitted them!

    They were bought second hand with a plan to fit them as is , or scotchbrite them + lacquer into fake aluminium
    They are genuine in pro items so german quality which are replacements NOT covers, in original box with original instructions (many fitting guides online too)
    They fit mk5 golf , golf plus , jetta 06 on, passat 04 on, EOS and Sharan 04 -  (its up to you to prove they fit)

    They are in very good condition (not perfect)

    This one's a bit of an overlooked modification but if you're looking to add extra track and reduce unsprung mass from the rear axle, this setup includes everything you need to literally plug and play (newish OE bearings and bolts) a set of Scirocco rear carriers.

    The price is slightly higher than the eBay carriers given that almost everything is less than 2/3 k miles old.

    Track wise, I had no issues and these were used in conjunction with BBS VZ wheels. If you're running a set of wheels with a really low ET, you may want to do a little homework first and I'm unable to confirm if they'll fit.

    They're a cracking little mod and they take about an hour or two to swap over
