Lupo GTi 280mm brakes.

Recommended Posts

Looking at putting 280mm on the front, know I need G60 carriers but just curious as to whether they'll fit over 15s.. (BBS RM ET33)

I know a lot off here have done it so just curious for a quick answer!

Thanks :)

Bathursts fit fine over 280mm discs, so don't see any reason why they wouldn't

Should sounds very risky!!!!!!

Well they are 15" and the offset sounds about right so I don't see any reason why they won't. If you think that's risky then that's up to you and you shouldn't do the upgrade.

I just know a few people have done it so want their opinion whether ill need to run spacers or if it fits before I spend out on if

I've seen them behind RMs before. Whether they were et33 or had used spacers in not sure.

I think you'll be fine though. I tried high offset RSs on mine once and the split rim bolts only just caught the caliper. And that was with massive Wilwood 4 pots that only just fitted behind the Bathursts.

I've managed to find someone with the same offset with them behind so that's all good...

However, looking at the carriers!

I have a part no of: 32323538/2 - apparently off a VR6 although part no seems to say Ibiza Cupra.. I've seen some places saying they're identical and others not so sure!

Anyone able to clear up?

Ibiza cupra ones are the same, have them fitted to my polo.

If you do a google all the infos there, but off the top of my head late golf gti, vr6, g60 rados, ibiza cupras all use the same carriers.

And for reference I have BBS RJs fitted with ET45.
