      ^^^^^^^^^as smart as you sound to be, you should have an idea what a rotation mass/inertia is, this is not a daily drive and this car will be much lighter than a R32, so there is no reason to add a 12.3'' or 13'' brake kit to it. a good brake pads set, brake lines and good brake fluid will do the trick.

      the parts that fit should be from an mk1 tt (up til 2006). The came with 4 different brake setups (fwd 1.8t, 180hp quattro, 225hp quattro, vr6 quattro) (source: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...44-Audi-TT-FAQ) on two different drive trains (FWD, AWD)

      I think the reason why the disks you got didn't fit was cause it's from the FWD tt. what you need is solid rears off an audi tt with quattro since they share the same suspension as the Rs.

      According to the FAQ, "180q (12.3"/9.4", vented front/solid rear)" 180hp quattro brakes is what you're looking to get instead of the wrong "FWD (12.3"/9.1", solid)" which you bought.

      hope this helps!
