I also have a Rieger front bumper painted and ready to install. Not sure if it weights more, less or the same than the OEM piece though.
ah cool, guessing then that 2996 was with me in it.

My understanding is that the bracket is not cross compatible. Meaning your BBK selection would only be those made for the Passat bracket. Which is far fewer than the GTI.

Yeah but B6 Passat is the same as the MK5 GTI, no?



Good thing I kept my old steel spindles...guess I'll find out when I go to bolt up my brembos.

Can confirm that the bracket for my brembo BBK fits both the B6 Passat/MK5 aluminum spindle even though the kit specifies MK6. The mounting holes are identical, you just need the longer caliper bolts when going to the MK5 spindle.
