Need to order some and have a choice of 2

288mm

312mm

The 312mm say cabriolet option. So im assuming 288mm and its raining outside so dont really want to go take a wheel off and check.

I spose I could double check etka etc if you like ?, but i am 99.9% on it. It's the larger engined ones that get them, 2.5Tdi s etc etc

acording to the shop on cabs have the 312mm discs, and also it said the 288 were the ones with the pads with wear sensors and i defo have wear sensors.


What do i need as regards to tools? Someone said something about an Allen bolt head for the caliper removal?

Not sure i have one of these someone confirm sizes?

lmfao, if youve already made it byz, if im wrong ill pop over and just eat yours, save me makin one lol.

as for the above comment on the 288mm one having the sensors, i have a cab with the 312mm disc which also have the sensors on them.

you will need a 7mm alan key ( which you DONT get in a set ) you only get a 5mm, 6mm and a 8mm, no 7!!!

what can i say, i am human, and i error'd.

SORRY !!

I don't suppose it matters it was meant with the best intentions to help. My information was incorrect as I too was told the same as you ( Cabs 312 and larger engines etc) when i was doing the 312 conversion many moons ago.

I will be more careful to not post withot irrefutable evidence from now on.

I am surprised by this as is did lots of research when looking into the 312 upgrade, didn't do it in the end as i couldn't find second hand carriers and wasn't prepared to buy new. Even EBC themselves say that all the 1.8 and 1.9 engines use 288mm discs.
