Femi upgraded the rears, but he made his own custom brackets and used dual calipers.

Yeah, I am looking to use the VAG parts bin for an upgrade.

My original plan was to use the fronts from either the standard FWD or the W8 with those on the rears with dual calipers. Custom fab a mount bracket for the dual calipers, keeping the original caliper (if possible) for the emergency brake only.

Interested to see what is cooked up for the rears. I don't remember seeing anyone upgrading rears. At least not on a FWD.
We are still looking into it as well. We are looking at upgrading to 330mm or 355mm up front and seeing if an axle swap is possible to achieve bigger rear brakes. I am also contacting a company in Europe that claim to have upgraded rears to 256mm setup. still waiting on an answer.
