Not to bump this back up, but I heard from someone that that 14mm triple square bolt on the rear calipers was a stretch bolt similar to the axle bolts. Does this mean it needs replacement when you take it out? I was just curious since you swap out your pads and rotors for a track specific setup everytime you go.
I may be ordering Hawk HPS pads sooner than I know it. Now I just need to decide if I should order the $15 14mm triple square from GermanAutoparts or buy the kit you recommend for $25. I already have a 6,8,10,12 kit.
I'm pretty certain thats incorrect. Neither my ex's 05.5 Jetta or my buddies 06 GTI had stretch bolts in those locations. If you look on the original page, you can see in the background where Meat has arranged the bolts he removed, none of which are stretch bolts.
