Not quite...

If the PP piston is 50mm then the area is 1963.5mm2

If the 18Z pistons are 30/34/38 the the area is about 5500mm2


Unless I have made a huge maths fail

To calculate the effective area you only calculate for one side not both as per a sliding caliper

Stock GTI/Ed. 30: ATE FN3 54 mm = 2290 mm²
R32/6R/S3 8P/TTS/Cupra mk2: ATE FNRG 57 mm = 2552 mm²
Brembo 18Z (30/34/38 mm): 707 + 908 + 1134 = 2749 mm²
GTI PP/Ed. 40/7R/S3 8V/Cupra mk3: TRW 60 mm = 2826 mm²

Those are my calculations. :confused:

I have it to both front and rear ..
My rear is the Caddy calipers with 41mm piston instead of the 37mm found on the GTI.

I'm having some trouble with my front kit since I'm running the alloy hubs from Cupa/S3/Passat. Hopefully it will possible to get a solution soon and have it installed

Your running the same calipers on the rear? Or the boxster rear calipers on the rear?

No, I run Porsche 986 front and VW Caddy calipers on the rear. Same size as the GTI caliper just with a larger piston in it.

Why run R32 splash guards when it'll fit with normal GTI 312 front / 288 rear guards?

Have fitted both front and rear NQSBBK setup for my mk5 .

Running with Vagbremtechnic J-hooked discs at all 4 whees with DS2500 pads.

Got a MASSIVE squeeking noice when braking, I've installed the anti rattle shims to hopefully could prevent this - but sadly they do make a lot of noise!

Anyone in here have runned with DS2500 pads for this setup? Need to hear if I should buy some Textar pads instead since my car will never see track :thinking:

16" Fitment Questions
« Reply #986 on: December 31, 2018, 01:23:33 AM »
So I'm another colonist with a Mk7/MQB chiming in. I read through the thread and am curious about the 16" fitment. My wheel choice is still up in the air, but I'm wondering if anyone has a good template or measurement technique for fitment? The only post with tips has missing photos. I'm planning to run them on my '17 GSW 4Motion that I'm lifting about 2-3"! There is a much better selection of 16" off road tires that fit than 17" ones so I'm hoping I can make these fit under some 16s. Currently the car has the OEM Toronto's(16x6.5 ET46, pretty flat mounting surface/spoke design). Thinking about running 1552s or some Sparco Terras.


I have some Neuspeed 6 pistons that use the OE 340mm rotors on my track car, but sadly they require 17s.

So I’m probably asking a question asked many times but o can’t find a definitive answer.

Front 986 calipers on mk5 golf with 18” Monza.

What spacers, if any, are required??

Many thanks
