      So I just got done polishing my rims and they look real good, but that factory brake caliper sticks out like a sore thumb becouse the rims are 18", so I would like to install a big brake kit on it any ideas what works.. I'm running porsche twist on a jetta so I'd like to run some porsche brakes if poss..
      I couldn't fix it, so I sixed it!!

      First, is your MK4 a 1.8t/vr6 or a 2.0/1.9? Because if it's one of the economy motors, there's a lot involved in getting big front brakes.

      But if you have one of the two more sportier models then:

      If you want the backs to look decent, get some matching caliper paint.
