Fantastic mate, looks like many of us ventured to the beach over the weekend, so good to get back to some normality whilst being mindful. (y)

Corner DRL's are delayed by a week due to lack of painted corner covers. Cars booked in tomorrow for 4 new tyres, just ordered oil and filter for this weekends service and just ordering some brembo discs and pads all round

You buying 2nd hand parts ?
trying to go new. but finding it cheaper to buy parts separately then a bundle. Bundle from darkside for example is over £900
i can get new vw twin pot calipers for about £150 a piece

also ordered a set of T6 flat wiper arm and aero blades from just kampers

yes hope so

Ok, went second hand in the end for the calipers, i found genuine new calipers at a good price but the spring clips were pricey and from Germany and i couldn't find the carriers on there own without going to dealer, no idea how much they would be but not cheap id imagine.

secured a set of Bi-TDI calipers in the end from a 2017 T6, £350 all in with the calipers, carriers, retaining clips, guide pins and brake hoses.

Just need to find a suitable set of Brembo 340mm front discs now.

Collect the Brembo pads and they are MASSIVE !

discs have arrived but i have a problem lol

the calipers to carriers use a 9mm allen key.

Ive got a shed load of tools but dont own a 9mm allen key, there not even easily available i.e. halfords, euro car parts and other local car accessory shops dont stock them. all my sets go from H8 to H10 no H9.

Had to order one from Amazon coming tomorrow, so thats slowing down progress. i cant paint the calipers or carriers until i have separated them.

Ah that sucks, at least it'll be with your tomorrow so not too much of a delay. Just frustrating when you want to get on with a job.
