      You haven't been posting as much...so I'm just curious if you have a secret build going on, OR you're just still driving a stock 2.5 Passat and trolling as usual
      I work about 55-60 hours a week. Three kids etc. I don't have time to play. Let alone tinker with my car. A troll. Really?? Trust me. Time gets away from me. With the car still under warranty, I'm holding off on motor mods. However, I have the $$$ set aside now to get the suspension and brakes sorted out.

      That being said, I wonder if larger brakes will actually stop the car quicker??

      Thanks northern droid. The prices are good. I'm probably going to check junk yards for the calipers. All else being new.

      I can get a deal on MK2 TTRS OEM front calipers, carriers, shields, lines, and rotors.

      Will these fit our cars?

      Still looking for the answer to the question above.

      Thanks! Pretty excited to get rid of the small Passat rotors. Almost broke down and bought cross drilled for cool factor but went with coated flat face rotors for more braking surface area.

      '16 Passat R Line
      12-18-2017 10:41 PM #40
      I was very interested in going BBK on my 16 Passat R Line. But man oh man is it big $$$$. So I just went with all around EBC Slotted Rotor. Yellow Stuff Pads and SS lines. The car stops and literally have experianced Zero fade even when Im on my spirited canyon drives, so for me, this setup was perfect and only cost just about 500$. Occasionally it squeals on slow cold stops and dust is heavy ish. But with Ceramic coated rims. The dust washes off easy.

      Looks good bud, as mentioned the drill rotors were used when the pad produced a gas when heated and the holes were used to vent the gases. Like the Neuspeed wheels also

      Thanks. Next is the ESP button, downpipes, and a tune then I’m done with the car.

      I went with Golf R brakes. I decided against the TTRS fronts because I didn’t want deal with the rotor wear and cost.

      Hey man, sorry to bring up an old post but I’m wanting to swap my B7 passat brakes to mk6 Golf R brakes.
      I bought 340mm rotors from R1 concepts and will be buying mk6 Golf R brake calipers, pads, dust shield.
      What lines did you get and where did you get them?

      Thanks

      Reserved for information regarding OEM upgrades, meaning larger calipers, rotors, pads, lines, and stiffening kits from other OEM applications.

      The most commonly used OEM upgrade is the MkV Golf R32/MkVI Golf R/B6 Passat 3.6 4motion brake setup. This is a direct replacement carrier and caliper that does not need an adapter. Other than the size, the advantage is adding a second piston to the front caliper. For the rear, a size increase also happens along with adding vented rotors.

      Highlight above....fronts only with the B6 Passat 4-MO. The rear calipers on the 4-MO I discovered used electric parking brakes so has to be R32 rear calipers for the B7 Passats cable E-brake. Oh and don't forget larger wheels. If your Passat is running 16" the fronts will not clear....I think 17" were the minimum wheel dia?...Maybe 18"?

      PS> And I never saw anything other than single piston front calipers in my search for B6 or MK5 R32 front calipers......Hmmm
