Colm, who is giving you advice?


That's twice in as many days they have sent you astray.

Why would the brake upgrade need to be 5?

On your other thread Kevin and the lads have already outlined what you need to know based on their experience.
Rear discs by the way are not needed on a MK1 so you also have the option to stay on drums but fully refurb them. Discs would be better job and look better but are not necessary. Plenty of reading up on MK1 Owners club website also.

Up front -
You have a number of options from Rocco 256, TSR conversion, 280s, Opel.
Research all 4 options then go look for the associated parts, hubs etc that you need but narrow it down first.

Aside from that, braided lines, new fluid and upgraded master cylinder and servo. Check also solid lines and make sure they are 100%.
