Cant replace battery on diesel because we need the Amps.


If you found an RS3 MC for $200 that's a steal! Especially if it's new. The only uses MC I've ever found is the one that I bought and have now sold.

Also I agree with you completely that the RS3/TT-RS MC is the way to go for nearly anyone considering this type of upgrade. I'm very happy with the brakes now that I've worked everything out, but I also am in the minority as I have a rear BBK also, and really only wanted this because this is the MC that was selected to be paired with the calipers I have. However if you don't mind the extra work and you can only find the MC new for $400+ (that's what I've seen it going for when I was looking) this can be done for less.

Yes, new ATE 25.4mm pump is 200$ with warranty, that's why i think at least for me is not worth the Touareg pump swap.

Not sure where you found that but that's crazy cheap!

This is the standard price point I've seen when looking myself.

Would the USA MC fit on the UK brake booster or would the holes not line up? I got the MC for 15 bucks, but we couldn't figure out how to pull the booster of the touareg....or can we use the stock GTI or maybe the TT brake booster instead?
