    I ran Motul 5.1 on my G60 brakes with the Girling 60's calipers..Worked amazing. Better then any other fluid Ive seen.

    will PLDub's Ball joints and tie rods on his mk4 2.0L work with the B3 Vr Spindle?
    (Yes I presume so, but does any other guru concur with this? Jeremy? Shawn? Blake? Paul L?)

    Should

    OH YEAH!!!
    he's right...

    the strut's on mk4's mount to the spindle differently.
    Damit, I should have known this right off the kick too!.... I was AT big_b's place in grimsby last night giving him a hand with his mk4 suspension
    stupid mk4's... ruined 40 years of lego-ness

    well.. on the market they go

    Performance Brake Pads and Brake Fluid

    On my IV I have gone for the OEM discs and uprated the pads for Carbotechs XP8s and Motul brake fluid. Honestly the car just stops brilliant setup IMO.

    If you are doing a brake upgrade, get 20th/GLI Brakes...or if you are feeling really crazy an R32 setup, I saw Markos the other day....those fronts are MASSIVE. They must stop like nothing.
