"Rear caliper update kit. Updates your car to the lighter aluminum VW Mk4 calipers"

Re: (xamx)

thats what i had to do. vwbobd has the bees knees mk4 caliper setup. you'll have to re-use your old carriers, and you'll need new hoses and banjo bolts. GAP has them for, well, 25$ per hose 5$ per bolt. so 60 bucks for the hose setup.
you could always go to the yard and pull some calipers. just about any rear disc off any vw up to 2005 should work.
if you get new mk4 calipers you have to have those hoses. GAP also has a kit for 250. comes with everything you'll need to swap the calipers, does not come with carriers or pads.
