Looks huge on that pic! You sure thats not for converting 256s to 280s? As 16v's have their own hubs...

Nope im sure Laughing
When i converted potter i used mk2 16v hubs Girling 54 calipers(which are the same for 256 or 280mm calipers) and 280mm carriers.These carriers are the left over ones for the 256mm discs.

You need girling 54 calipers to run them,im assuming thats what you have?

Not sure what they are mate, they're standard 1.8 carb brakes at the mo with solid 239mm discs. I have the calipers off the gti donor car, but they look no different I don't think. I always thought the calipers on the 1.6, 1.8, and 8v/16v gti were the same?

Aaaah ive got it on good info that they wont fit your hubs mate,they only fit 16v hubs as the hole centres are different and it push's the calipers out too far. Sad
