Right, so I have a 1999 2.8 v6 4motion syncro passat so the older generation with the 282mm brake setup and I want to upgrade to 312mm.

I was on the hunt looking for 2 front 312mm carriers and I seen an Audi TT 225 for breaking and had the carriers.

Would anyone know if they would fit my car being the 1999 the older model I heard that the caliper mounting holes are different and I would need calipers front a newer generation such as a b5.5 passat pd130 etc… Is this true?
Thanks

I don't know if the calipers are different as the V6 4Mo came with 288mm brakes in the US. I did the upgrade on my old wagon. The 1998 1.8T had smaller brakes here. Can you get your caliper part number? Maybe with that, we can see if it matches or not.
