If i was willing to budget $300 for brakes, including labor, do you guys have any better suggestions?
I worked with a VW shop local to me and talked to them about brake options. I was encouraged to check out the Tyrolsport master cylinder bracket. The mechanic suggested to me that it is at least 4X as effective as a brake line upgrade. I got one installed and am really happy with the results.
