    Alcon 4 pot brake kit for mk4 turbo.

    I can't seem to find much info about these online, i know they were fitted to the 888 and i want to upgrade my standard brakes for the same 888 set up, anyone know where they sell the kits and for how much? cheers.

    Do these fit behind the O.Z 17s?

    You heard wrong, the kit new was more than the AP kit, hence you're finding it hard to find them as the AP kit was better VFM.

    I doubt they would fit under the 17" 888 OZ wheels, in fact they never were fited to the MK4 888 as standard they were fitted to the Thurlby "888" mk5 CDTi.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
