Are you going to run Haldex or a Synchro rear end?

I told him via PM months ago what he needs. He disregarded what I said and started mentioning looking for parts off of other cars. That's when I stop. I greatly dislike when people that ask for advice, but don't listen to the answers they get. I have no problem with people doing things their own way, but don't waste my time, knowledge or experience in the process.
Been there, done that-
Actually, he's not. He has a valid question and obviously has more than average knowledge, but can't find this specific answer. Just from the information presented:
1) He was given an initial answer
2) Based on that information, he ordered parts that don't actually fit the application
3) He's back trying to find a different/correct answer
I don't see the problem here. Instead of contributing he's been given crap about completely irrelevant issues (ME7). And let's face it, without placing blame, we all know Josh/PD gets busy with IRL stuff and falls off the map for a bit. We all do. Give the dude the benefit of the doubt before crapping down his throat just because he's not posting about a MOAR LOW AIRBAG LOL or "staggered wheel" thread.
All my measurements and brake layout stuff is at work and I haven't slept all day. Off the top of my head look into 20th AE or Jetta GLI/GLX rears. I think I saw someone even use MkIII Golf VR6 rotors before too. I think they're smaller but like I said I have nothing in front of me and I need to go to bed.
basically i got bitched at for asking a question the other day.. i try to help anyone with a question if i have any bit of knowledge on... I guess when i see HorribleR posting stuff like that it just makes me :roll eyes:
Now if you had posted a 12 v swap in your MK3 and talked about the swap and thats it... then id agree. IDK, OK well post more pics, haha
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!
