      So, in my research I've found that Chris' above statement refers to the Bosch calipers/carriers that VW installed on cars for the 272mm rotors. It appears that at least the Golf-related cars all...

      TDI front brake carrier part #?

      Since dealers need VINs to pull part numbers these days, does anyone know the part # for the 312mm front TDI brake carrier? Similarly I'm looking for the larger (than my stock 272mm rotors) rear...

      Yep. I've already done enough thinking about it to know that this is probably not a good idea as I've laid out above. Thanks for the input!

      2012. Picked up in late 2011.

      If I have to get red carriers/calipers in order to go bigger, I'll gladly paint them black, just no red. Do you have the strip the existing paint to repaint?

      5+5's have vented wing windows. I'm 95% certain I've seen them on an 82 4-door (I think my spare set was pulled from an 82). My 84 2-door were non-vented.
