    So over a spot of lunch I starting looking at the rear braking options.
    I'm trying to keep this braking upgrade simple so it actually happens and gets fitted to the van and then I can benefit from all the effort!

    This looks easier than I thought and following my "stay with a T4 upgrade" I found out that the Petrol V6 rears use the same calliper as my '01 AJT.
    My rear disks are 280 x 12 and can be improved to 294 x 13.5 (7D0 615 601C) by simply changing the calliper carriers to 7D0 615 425A.
    Well 14mm (10.2% area increase) must of been acceptable to the VW R&D guys when they were working out the stopping power of a 204KW V6!
    There are various third party new options for £25'ish delivered per carrier but I've seen both caliper and carriers for similar money.

    Quick update on the rear brake upgrade 280 to 294mm . TRW sell the caliper carrier part number BDA463 for £21.93 each delivered, which I found on Amazon as the best price. I figured my original calipers are pretty new (2 years old) & work fine and are fairly clean for painting so just changing the carrier will save some time. Next is track down some disks, pads and some new front cover plates & new 300mm rear cover plates 7D1 615 611 or 350mm rears 7D0 615 611B.

    Front Brake Cover Plates - described as 310/110 and fits ALL engines and brake disc sizes.
    I cannot personally confirm this but will update this as I need it to fit 313mm discs!
    I've posted the info I collated on the fronts below because of the HUGE pricing discrepancies when you start searching.

    My rear splash guards I paid £4.11 each and I've paid £7.74 each for the left and right fronts from German brand Van Wezel.
    I've never purchased these new before so quality , materials and finish could be very different across the brands.

    OEM Part Numbers :
    LEFT -
    VAG 701407343
    VAG 7D0407343A
    VAG 7D0407343B

    NK234723 , Van Wezel 5874371 , Klokkerholm 9558377 , JP Group 1164200470 , Metzger 6115057 , TopRan 116838 , VAICO V10-3900 , BLIC 6508-03-9558377P , MaXGear 19-3250 , AutoMega 210030810 .

    RIGHT -
    VAG 7D0407344
    VAG 7D0407344A
    VAG 7D0407344B

    NOR: 9558378 , VAN WEZEL: 5874372 , AUGROS 54981352 , AUGROS 5498152C , KLOKKERHOLM V9558378 , KLOKKERHOLM 9558378 , SCHLIECKMANN 417378 , JP Group 1164200480 , BLIC 6508-03-9558378P , NK 234724 , Metzger 6115058 , VAICO V10-3901 , Topran 116839 , MaXGear 19-3251 , AutoMega 210030910 .

    I've tried to collate all the x-ref part numbers but its far from exhaustive. Best deals were in Germany by far and reflected pricing relative to a pressed shape in zinc plated tin in my opinion.

    REAR OEM Part Numbers
    300mm rear cover plates 7D1 615 611
    350mm rear cover plates 7D0 615 611B.
    I'll up date the aftermarket rears later.

    Picked up another cheap LUK 3 piece clutch kit over the weekend , it's the 240mm for the AHY/AXG . I reckon it'll come in handy soon.
