    Non abs brake discs

    Im going to replace my brake discs and pads soon and was looking on ebay for vented discs.

    However they all say that there for the 2.0 dt non abs?
    why is this?
    and will they still work on my dti with abs?

    many thanks?

    abs works by a ring spining round with loads of little tabs sticking out and a sensor knows where the wheel is by what tab its sensing (hope this is making sense) the ring is normally on the back of the hub but it my be on the disc on your dti, although ive never seen it on a disc but theres prb a good reason still no to use them maybe they are thicker as vented discs normally are

    its totally irrelevant mate

    its due to sellers not knowing their stuff in most cases.

    on the mk4 the size of disc does NOT change whether u have ABS or not

    so if you have 4 stud discs - u use 256mm discs

    5 stud discs use 280mm discs (obviously bar the 2.0T but thats irrelevant here)

    So if the listing is for 4 stud discs they will be 256mm or 5 stud discs they are 280mm.

    As long as the ones you are looking at match the stud pattern of your model then ur sorted.
