    For anyone looking at doing this conversion,
    CRN Performance are able to supply pre-drilled discs at £70-80 a pair, the cheapest I've found them by far.

    Hi mate, you're probably better searching for 'seat 305mm' for that conversion as the rear boxster calipers are compatible with the 4-stud setup found on the Ibiza Cupra R - very good upgrade using all off the shelf parts.

    Well, 3 and a bit years on and the brakes are still great - just poweful enough to inspire confidence but not lock up - have done around 45k miles since the conversion and the VAG pads were almost down to the metal so have changed these for a set of EBC Green Stuff I had kicking around. Discs around half worn so should hopefully last until the next pad change.

    Just to be clear, I'm wearing a full flame suit as i type this…

    Brand new 288mm with genuine VW disks and pads are good on a 5-stud;

    Brand new 280mm with genuine VW disks and pads are great on a 4-stud;

    Ibiza Brembos on a 4-stud are epic (when warm).

    Anything else will require a new master cylinder to better stock for bite and feel...

    ??? - Or this 312mm conversion on either car as no MC upgrade needed...

    Brakes are still great and have done 65k miles now... will need new discs on the next pad change later this year.

Goodridge should really make these standard like on the Bike kits they do.
    Just to show how good these look nearly 5 years on - still like new :-)

    Can't go wrong with Goodridge's (I just wish I had got the advice before I bought from S******* well at least other's have been saved from being made a mug of) Pedal feel with them is immense

    So nearly 100k miles later and the discs have started to judder and the 3rd set of pads have about 3mm left...

    I have some brand new discs but need to get them drilled - has anybody done this or got a link to anyone selling any?

    VW price for these is now 86.50+Vat each!! (I paid £29 from TPS!)

    I'll email Badger5 where I got the originals from I think but I know they were a 'one-off'

    Interestingly the discs are multi-fit so come with 9 holes - I think 2 are re-used with a brass bush (M14 to M12) so only 2 new holes needed per disc.
