    Thread: DIY article and how I upgraded my rear brakes to R32 MKV units

    1. 02-11-2009 08:36 PM #1
      I wanted to do this upgrade for some time and finally got around to it on my 2006 Jetta TDI. I also did a DIY for others who may be interested in doing this as well. Very pleased with the results and can't wait for my front upgrade to Audi R8 rear calipers very soon.

      reference
      ... You can save these pounds by removing other things at the track to make up for the weight. ...

      removing sprung weight is not the same as removing unsprung weight

      I know that. Lighter wheels may be another option for those that are looking to save every pound. Just wanted people to be aware that they are a bit heavier overall.
