Re: Audi TT brake calipers

TT,s are about 1/2 the weight of a T4 ... other options may be better ..
And about a century newer in braking technology and with twice the power of a T4.

Try it and see, if nothing else, vented discs would be a start. Remember that the original TT was 5x100 not 5x112 so you would need to find some different discs.

I've just put the mk2 sharran vr6 calipers on mine and the discs are the same stud pattern
. Made loads of difference and that's without braided hoses. Takes the discs up to 313mm

If your on about the vr6 brakes the only other thing you need is the carrier bolts. I got all of my bits from a scrap yard for £50. The only mod is to drill out the hub from 16mm to 18mm

Re: Audi TT brake calipers

Yea everything you need is on that car.

Parts needed
Calipers and pad springs
Pads discs ( if not using new)
Carriers and mounting bolts

Mod required

Drill out hub holes from 16mm to 18mm for the new carrier bolts to fit.
I bought the drill bits from eBay 17mm and 18mm for £4.50 each. Hub is quite soft so drills easy.

If I've missed anything or you need to ask more the. Please do so.

Just remembered your wheels need to be 16" or more to fitT:

Yea make sure it's a mk2 and the disc size is 313mm and not 288mm.
If you can afford it see how much the want for the rear carriers. The calipers are the same on the van but the carriers bring the calipers out so you can fit bigger discs.

If you can't find the vr6 calipers then you can always use the standard Sharan mk2 setup, these use 300mm discs and are dirt cheap in the scrappiesT:
