BlueGT Front Brake Disc

Post by MarkoPolo » Fri Jan 25, 2019 3:11 pm

Looking to replace the front discs and pads on my 6R BlueGT.

Does anyone know what size disc I need? There seems to be 3 options, 256mm, 288mm and 312mm.

I've recently changed the back pair to some Brembos and now that GSF have another 60% sale, I thought I'd treat the front too :P

Thanks,

Well 256mm not possible, 288mm probably, 312mm normally only for GTI.

You really do need to check proper brake manufacturer's websites to find out which brakes your car has.

Hi Marko

Did you have any issues with the 288mm front brake discs fitting? I’ve ordered myself some and the garage I took it to fit them said they were too small?

Thanks in advance

Did you get anywhere with this job? Where did you buy the 288mm diameter vented discs from?

Haven't done this yet but have ordered some from GSF Car Parts.

Should arrive tomorrow and going to be fitting them on Saturday.

Will update you after(if) they are fitted
