Thanks to dubmodder.com

Somebody told me I had Corrado front brakes and the snowflakes I want won't clear. That's why I have Rotas in this picture. :cry:

Nice creation you made there! Actually, you should look up Kammy's recent upgrade to her pristine Cabby-it looks a lot like the one you made 8)

shameless plug in the name of trivia: Did you know that my very own Crabby Cabby was used as the Dubmodder Cabiolet model? :D

Measure the rotor diameter. I did some ETKA lookup a few months back, sorry, I didn't get any 'raddo specs.

Stock Cabby rotors are 239mm, 16V 'rocco rotors are 256mm, both fit under snowflakes.
Two other A3 sizes I found were 280mm and 288mm, both of those are 5 lug.

I'll measure tonight....there's 25.4 mm to an inch, right? Or about 9.5" or so for stock Cabby and about 10" for Scirocco?

I hope they're not G60...I already have a set of silver snowflakes lined up!

There's a good chance they are 16v Scirocco brakes up there.

I've not seen too many folks put raddo brakes on the cabbies. However, since I know that car was converted to disk in the rear (and chances are good that they are also rocco brakes) you will want to make sure to upgrade the master cylinder to a 16v rocco one or 28mm I think it is if it hasn't been done already. Otherwise you will get squishy pedal. Some nice SS brake lines will help firm things up real well also.

Oh an you are correct on the measurements. 9.5 for stock cabby front disks and 10" for rocco 16v front disks. 8v rocco fronts are the same as a cabby.

YAY....rotors are 10" and the calipers say "Girling 54" which I was told are 16V Scirocco.

Gotta fix my picture now to include the snowflakes!

Now your talking. Though I did like the rota rims you had on there. A nice set of Rota Slipstreams might even look really cool.

My Bad, you're right. I didn't look very close first time round. :oops:
