These actually came off of an 2008 Cayman S and they have the 9.5" rears. I'm posting these for sale realizing that they may actually fit my...

    Us older German car buffs need to stick together, or at least, that's what I'm hoping is the sentiment that is shared. I'm joining not because I have a Passat but because I'm seeking wiring information from the Passat B5 community on how to retrofit the Passat B5 Comfort Blink signal into a...

    Is Apikol.com the only place to get these brackets now? Or does BIRA still sell them? Contemplating the upgrade but the brackets would cost more than both calipers. Thanks guys! :thumbup:

    OK, so understandably it is difficult to sell a complete modified car in a market of owners who have a measure of pride, passion and investment in their working daily driver.
