In the next few days I will post a few templates. golfmk6.com states that the files are too large. I will have to compress it. I will post the following kits:
Stoptech 328mm
Stoptech 355mm
Brembo 330mm
brembo 328mm
Golf R
ECS Stage 3
ECS Stage 5

This will allow quick reference for this BBK fitment and decision guide. Most of the four piston design such as Stoptech and Brembo fit pretty similarly if the disc diameter is the same. The calipers are shaped differently so that can determine wheel choice. More to come...

Racing Brake 330x28 fit stoptech 328x28?

Anyone succesfully fit racing brake rotor rings to the stoptechs when replacing?

I'm not sure. What the benefits to the RB rings?

Stoptech has some of the cheapest rings ($185ish), a good wear tolerance (2mm), and are very good quality.

i got them from THmotorsports.com
http://thmotorsports.com/stoptech/st.../i-334034.aspx

Looks like they went up since i bought them about 4 months ago, but they're still $195. I will say that THmotorsports has shitty customer service and take a while to dropship from Stoptech.

From now i'll pay more and buy from a legit race parts dealer like Zeckhausen.com. Top notch service and all their parts are in stock. $230 though.

Ok, thanks. Racing brakes pairs can be had for $353, but speced out as "may fit" need to check for 1mm clearance.
