I saw my pads are getting pretty thin, so I'll probably need to replace them in about 10k more miles. A couple of questions:
1) Are there any oversized brake rotors that utilize the stock caliper?
2) What is the best rear drum to rotor conversion?
3) Where can I get some foliatec caliper paint?
Also, where's the best (read: cheapest) place to get the brake stuff. Oh, I'll probably get braided brake lines too

Re: Brakes question..... (J-Man)

1) don't know on the brake upgrade, i'd suggest ATE powerslots and mintex redbox pads. If you want to do performance, do an 11.0" G60 or 11.3" RPI brake upgrade.
2) http://www.ecstuning.com or http://www.parts4vws.com . You could put it together from a junk yard, you'd need the hub, caliper, carriers, rotors, and i think thats it... but the ECS tuning kit has all brand new parts.
3) http://www.tuningzubehor.com or http://www.dtmautohaus.com
good place to get brake parts - http://www.germanautoparts.com or http://www.parts4vws.com . The service of the potters makes up for the slight price difference.
