I would like to replace the brake system in my 1999 variant to something a little bigger. I've heard the a8 is a cost-eff. way to go, but I don't know.
Does anyone have insight on this??? I used the info forum and nothing to my like. Reason is later down the road I'd like to upgrade to a k-04 turbo.

What Dan(D.Passat00) gave you as a link is good, but if you want more bite and bigger rotors then go with these:

http://www.ecstuning.com/stage/edpd...=FWD&category=Braking&subcategory=ECS Stage 1

With these you keep your stock calipers and just get bigger rotors, form either a 11" or 11.3" stock to a nice big 13.1" rotor

Also get the PBR ceramic brakes are a great buy!

What you do is all a metter of price!

Well technically 16" wheels are the most practical. Large enough to clear the A8 upgrade, lightweight, cheap rubber, large enough to fit performance tires on.
