    VXR brake onto mk4 coupe

    hey guys, after my last thread about upgrading brakes i got myself a cheap as chip set of front VXR calipers,carriers and discs! i got some genuine VXR pads now but ive just been thinking do i need to replace the brake pipe flexys? and will they fit under my 17'' turbo wheels?
    thanks

    they will fit under the rims no problem

    u will however need new brake lines though as standard mk4/mk5 use M10 banjo whereas the VXR uses M12

    Personally Id recommend getting some braided hoses - make the most of the brakes!

    I paid about £45 for a pair of fronts from Courtenay sport but seeing as I already had rears i didnt need a full set

    Full sets can be had very reasonably - Camskill are the most competitive Ive seen recently (obviously u need the mk5 kit)
