Brake conversion kit for GTi, that I didn't know about?

Recommended Posts

Hello, quite a large problem here regarding brakes,

I ordered a set of Black diamond discs and predator pads for my lupo gti (matched up by the reg plate) diameter 256x25 thickness. All good? No.

I've come to fit these brakes and upon taking my old disc off (that I ordered and fitted perfectly using my Reg plate) realised that they are nothing alike.

My old disc is 280ish x 22ish.

I wasnt aware that my Lupo, had a big brake conversion on it.

Can anyone tell me how this has happened and how i can rectify? What discs are being used on my conversion?? and what car from??

Thank youuuu.

The 280mm upgrade is the most common, quite a few on here have done it.

Have a search and see what disks/pads are required

Although it's an inconvenience, i bet it's a nice suprise.

Isnit, I'd be pretty happy with that.

The pads you've bought will be fine. Just send the discs back and buy either G60/ibiza cupra discs. Any 4-stud 280mm disc should be fine. You can get them cheap enough from GSF, but if you want drilled/grooved, then best get them off the net, as any 'normal' parts shop will sting you for them!

As it turned out they were the G60 upgrades, thank you for comments and hell yes im happy!

Always thought they fit the alloys quite snug!
