ECS Tuning Releases Big Brake Kits for Mk7 Golf and Golf GTI Share Comments Through in-house product testing and performance validation, the design team at ECS Tuning have put together affordable Big Brake Kits (BBK) for your MK7 Golf / GTI. The fronts, utilizing Genuine Volkswagen brake calipers from the MK5 R32 or B6/CC VR6 4Motion, you can instantly bolt on better braking and have confidence in the performance and reliability that these kits provide. ECS 2-piece, semi-floating, slotted and cross drilled rotors are available. These rotors optimize the dispersion of heat, and feature lateral vibration dampening and considerable weight savings, for smooth, strong stops. Maximum weight savings over a standard one piece rotor are achieved due to the lightweight aluminum hat and 2 piece construction for a total reduction of 18.75 lbs combined for the fronts and 5.30 lbs combined for the rears, as compared to a standard one piece cast rotors. With the ECS 345x30mm Front Big Brake Kit, the brake pad is moved further outboard from the center of the hub, thereby improving braking system torque, heat transfer and repeatable, high speed stopping. Compared to the original Golf’s 288x25mm or GTI’s 312x25mm brake rotors, it’s clear to see why the ECS BBK offers immediate improvements! The ECS Rear Big Brake Kits convert the solid 272x10mm discs to ventilated 310x22mm discs for overall improved performance. To prevent brake pad deposits and reduce fade, ECS GEOMET® slotted or cross drilled and slotted rotors are available. Cross-drilling dissipates heat faster for better braking and reduced fade. Slotting cleans the pads by moving water, gasses, and contaminants away from the pad/rotor contact surface to further enhance braking performance. To prevent rust pitting and corrosion damage, ECS GEOMET® rotors are sprayed with a special water-based solution, then heated to cure the coating and remove all oil residue remaining from the manufacturing process. These added steps create a durable, lasting rotor surface that resists road salt, solvents and other corrosives. For 100% bolt on performance, ECS Exact Fit Stainless Steel brake lines have been custom fitted for each kit. Stainless reinforced brake lines provide more confident and dependable stopping by maintaining consistent brake pressure, long lasting corrosion resistance, and increased protection from failure compared to stock rubber lines.
