Please keep in mind that the brakes on the Jetta trims, and the GLI are going to have different setups. I dont see anything listed above there, so not sure if its being accounted for.

Re: The brakes of the MK5 platform - OEM and Upgrades (eggroller)

oempl.us(?) also has the same R32 kit as Autotech for a bit less IIRC.
Powerslot already has part numbers listed for the GTI/GLI/A3, but it will be another 2-3 months before before they release their oem sized rotors; and oversized rotors with caliper adapter brackets.
They should already have out applications for TDI's and 2.5 VW's
EBC Brakes already have 3 types of pads and oem sized cross drilled/slotted Front and Rear rotors.

Figured we could count on you to come up with something for the MK5 platform!
Keep the information coming folks! The more the merrier!!! I will edit when I have spare time and consolidate all information into the 1st post (like last time with the MK4 brakes).

I thought that the R32's had two piston caliper up front.
Eric
Me too, but judging by the pictures provided in the ETKA and Autotech (link). They are now one piston.

The Front brakes are 288mm x 25mm (12.3" x .98") Vented Rotors w/1 piston calipers

Could you correct this to 11.3"x.98"? Thanks

Ray - great work to make informative topic! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
While on the subject, I found this (smaller) AP racing bbk.
This can be fitted with OE 17" wheels as seen in this pic.

I could NOT find anyone actually selling it in USA though.
Only Japanese dealer so far... http://www.h-sport.jp/brakes.html

Re: The brakes of the MK5 platform - OEM and Upgrades (AutoCrossR32)

MK4 R32's might be 2 piston, but, from what we have seen the MKV R32 is a single piston. go figure

here is a link the brake kit from the MKV R32.
By the way, it says the MKV size is 13.6" (345mm)

Anyone kow if a direct upgrade can be done from the R32 V to the Gti V using only the rotors and keeping the same calipers ?
The R32 brakes are 30mm thick while the Gti rotors are 25mm, but i've heard they can be opened wider ?
Does anyone know ?

Re: (eggroller)

Does anyone know about the rear brakes of the new Leon Cupra. Are these the same as in R32; 310mm vented rotors or the same as in Golf V-GTi; 286mm solid rotors.
It's been made clear that the front brakes are the same as in R32; 345mm vented rotors w/ 2-piston calipers...???
