I've got a pair of front mk2 gti 8v calipers going spare mate, they should fit OK, my car has the same calipers and I've run solid and vented discs with them

no bother. to be honest i would have just fitted them but i've done a bit of a deal with a mechanic mate - he's sorting the brakes in exchange for my koni adjustables. sadly he likes things to be right!


i have not looked but i suspect one is red and the other is rust!

Unfortunatley im one of them anal mechanic types that likes to do stuff right(Much to Adi's annoyance Laughing )
The brakes work perfect and never had any fluid loss out of the seals so i would say they will be fine.Although for the sake of a few quid id wangh a new seal in it.
Seems like your mechanic mate got a bloody good deal there Shocked

He kind of did. They are 15 years old, minimum so approaching the end of their days i'd say although fully working at the minute. I don't have a lot of time on my hands so would have ended up paying him to do it anyway.

He's actually fitted the fronts to his nissan bluebird!

I didn't realise the seals were so cheap. Where do you get them from? Gsf?
