Heres the Brakes, from an old boxter non s, 4 pot brembos, They are fabulous, work on stock size rotor.

Also just put the wheel studs on today too, so much nicer than lugs.

Edit: sorry my wheels are dirty AF, about to change to daily wheels now since these are on and i can put my spacer on.

The track will do that! Just read through your build, coming along nicely man. I love the yellow painted tire text, you have officially inspired me to do the same when I get my new tires. You ever get your DSG issue figure out? What was it?

bushings going in, ran into some problems with endlinks looking bad so getting some from a local part out. Alignment is all fucked up. I love having no car to drive, lol. But at least at this point I have done nearly everything I wanted to do suspension wise..

I grabbed alum spindles all around from @eurocars, and alum control arms from him. Those are on with powerflex bushings. Currently putting in the powerflex bushings in the spring bucket and trailing arm. My brake caliper connecting line somehow got crushed in a part of it so i orderd one from ecs, which was fun to find the part number. I wish that cars in general wouldnt break when you try to upgrade things, lol.

Pics to follow hopefully next week when its all done and sitting pretty for interior mods and ready for the oil pump conversion.

update:

Rear passat spindles add 10mm so I can not fit my track wheels nor am I going the route to do flares. I am in the process to putting back the oem spindle in the rear.
new koni shocks in the rear.

Probably will not do roll bar and seats. Thinking of keeping this car as a fun daily as i move onto other things. I do not enjoy having a car with such engine up keep. For my future car It will probably only get a few engine mods and hopefully not have a terrible fueling system with ticking time bomb that you have to check every other oil change (cam follower).

Yeah those rear spindles give you a decent bump out. At least they aren't hard to do! I've gotten to that point before, question if this is the right car to go balls out on, but then said fuck it and kept going down the rabbit hole. Now I'm close to being done and the combined mods have made for one hell of a car. So glad I didn't give up and just kept rolling with it. Hopefully you don't throw in the towel, with a lot of work these cars can be incredible. Just takes a lot of time and money to get em there.
