Sure I will sell you my Azev C's, they come with an engine and brake upgrade for your valver included, not to mention all the Corrado spares you will ever need.

For the rear it is just a matter of changing the brake discs.

For the front you need hub centres and outer cv joints from a mk3 gti/vr6. Then you put the hub centres into your own hubs and use mk3 gti brake discs with your own pads calipers and carriers (you have 280mm brakes on yours yeah?)

mk3 gti disks wont work, you need to redrill the 4 stud disks as the offset or disk height is less on the 5 stud ones and it wont let you bolt on the callipers to the hub, you need to machine the outer edge of the 5 stud hub centres too (before you press them in the bearings) so the 4 stud disk can fit over them, they barely catch on the inside of the disk.

very early passat vr6 had the correct offset 280mm brake disks with 5x100 stud pattern.

i would think that to do it on a mk1 you would need the late cabrio drives to fit the vr6 outer cv joints and you would need to machine down the vr6 hub centre to fit in the mk1 bearing. golf vr6 syncro rear hubs would let you keep the mk1 cv joints as they have the same spline but you would still need to machine the hubs down to fit in the bearing, i had to do this when i changed to 5 stud hubs on the rallye and it cost me a small fortune to buy all the parts and i had abs too which meant more work on the front hubs moving sensor brackets and mixing and matching parts.
