      Hi Everyone

      I've been doing some research on how to change my rotors and pads.
      Thanks to this LINK
      And this thread

      I do know that I need a electronic brake service tool like EBS301
      I also know that I need a Caliper tool set like THIS
      Also know about the triple square 14mm socket like THIS

      Now the rotors size seems to be very confusing on every website, even vw parts.
      Im pretty sure I need 340mm in the front and 310mm in the back.
      Some websites show 312mm in the front for a 4Motion which Im pretty sure is wrong... even tough vw parts also shows this.

      To sum it up...
      1) Whats the correct size for rotors?
      2) Whats a good website to buy them?
      3) Any additional advice or comments?

      Thanks in advance for any help.
