    Need exact info about the carriers and the calipers, I need 4 pot calipers and heading for 312mm discs. Which brand/model and which MY should I look for? It's hard to find LCR calipers here..

    I've read Megane 2 RS calipers (4 pot brembos) also fit? Asked my dealer for a brand new kit and they replied they want my both legs and an arm.

    Edit : in need of these parts for a boc with original rims

    Hi mate, i bought a Leon mk1 312mm front setup.. so if I understand everything i've read on this thread so far I will need to use the calipers from the leon and buy discs and pads for the Mk1 Leon or Mk4 Golf /w 312mm?

    Thanks

    I have e seat ibiza 6j 2.0 year 2012 143hp

    I have the same caliper als de audi a1 with the 312 brake setup.

    I only need to chance the carier the same as the audi en then i can put 312mm disc on.

    I have 6R0615125 if you chance dis to 8x0615125a tis is from te audi then you can put the 312 mm setup.

    Tell if I'm correct. I have a 6j 2013 1.6 tdi fr with ate calipers 288mm disc and the only thing I need to change is the carriers so I can fit the 312mm discs, right? What is the reference number for those is it the audi one?

    I've been comparing references on etka and the seat Ibiza 2013 310mm setup uses the same caliper only with different carriers. But doubt is everyone is talking about the 312mm setup and not 310mm.

    I'm just in the process of working through this now as I want to upgrade the 288x25 (5x100) discs on my ST as I've had a turbo upgrade.

    My notes are as follows:

    310mm Upgrade
    There's a 310mmx25 (5x100) disc (6R0 615 301 B) that uses the same carrier as the 288mm version (6R0 615 125 B) the B for Red
    It uses the same caliper part number (1K0 615 124 M) the M for Red as the 288mm version and only the pads are different (8X0 698 151)
    That appears to be a straight swap but if you want the red, you can opt for those. In theory, it's just a 310mm disc and pads to fit directly onto the 288mm hub and carrier. Obviously this will be dependent on wheel size.

    312mm Upgrade (SEAT Sport/Cupra caliper)
    Completely different caliper, carrier and pads

    For the sake of 2mm and the SEAT Sport printed text on the caliper, I think I'm ok with the 310mm option :yes:
