I know I've posted a few randoms but I'm trying to get my caddy sweet.

What brakes do you recommend Ive already orderd spax coilsovers from demon tweaks. Now need to replace breaks and disks what do you recommend don't want crap but don't want race spek but want better than standad. The caddy's at 150bhp right now.

Thanks

Mine came with 312mm discs as standard, these are same as golf gti, and I've just replaced the discs and pads with pagid stuff, mine is maxi life so think heaviest out there and running 152 bhp and find it stops nicely, I don't see any need to go bigger

Upgrade to the 312mm discs, simple to do and effective, make sure your wheel diameter is 16inch or more tho, they won't fit under a standard steelie

Do I need new calipers to do this mate? Do you have a link?

Thanks for the reply

No you don't need new calipers, just the carriers type into ebay

There is a red set for sale at £85.00, just a case of swapping these and installing new discs

It's very easy to upgrade from 288mm to 312mm, as said above all you need is the 312 carriers and 312 disks (some upgrade the brake dust shields too but you can get away with the old ones), the caddy calipers are the same as the GTI ones only they ain't painted red, I swapped the calipers too only because they looked better in red than the rusted ones on her.
