    Cheers for the info, lads. I have updated the original post with part numbers.

    We still need some more for:

    ABS rotors
    Rear Pads
    Rear discs
    Rear bearings

    Re: 288 Front Brakes and MkIV Rears -Part Number Thread

    I've just asked my mechanic here in Ireland to check prices and availability for the following from VAG - at present dealers here are doing a 25% discount over normal trade prices on brake service parts, so it will be interesting to see if this applies to older cars as well:

    Front:

    1 x 3A0615123 calliper with 54mm pistons lh
    1 x 3A0615124 calliper with 54mm pistons rh
    2 x 4A0615125A calliper carriers, 288 mmm
    4 x 4D0698647 Calliper guide bushes
    4 x N90708502 calliper carrier mounting bolt
    2 x 3A0615301A Front brake discs, 288 mmm
    1 x 8N0698151 Front brake pads, set

    Rear:

    1 x 1J0615423 rear calliper, lh
    1 x 1J0615424 rear calliper, rh
    1 x 1H0615425 calliper carrier, lh
    1 x 1H0615426 calliper carrier, rh
    1 x Goodridge kit part number- SVW0506-2P
    2 x 191598625 rear wheel bearings

    2 x Rear discs (standard corrado rear)
    1 x rear pads (standard VR6)

    Finally got round to getting these fitted - big difference. The 288 just fit under the speedlines, and fill out the rims nicely - the rears are reassuring, and hopefully they shoul dnot suffer from any seizinf like the MkIIs. Brake feel is very positive and definitely better. The only issue was the Mk2 to Mk4 rear hoses - the banjo nut was the wrong size and we had to get a new one from a hydraulic hose place.

    I went for all new parts, but you could get away with refurbed s/h items - especially the carriers, as these are very pricey.

    Definitely a mod well woth doing and still OEM - VR6s should probably have had 288s as standard anyway seeing as the Mk3 Golf Vr6 had them.

    Yeh they're quite a snug fit between the Speedlines ey?! It was only the late mk3 VR's that had 288's (95 onwards) so it was too late for the Corrado then

    Yeah, I guess it was too late by then - still would have been nice if they'd had more stopping power from the get go.

    Updated list with more part numbers for rear discs, pads and ABS rings. That should be pretty much it.

    Can we make this sticky if possible ? Thanks.

    I've also read that the 288 setup was also used on MK3 GTIs from late '95 onwards, so that should make second hand setups easier to find.

    Will the ABS rotors that are already on the Corrado fit on the 288 discs?

    The abs rotors fit to the back of the hubs not the brake disc
