Hi Craig.

My car too has been off the road really since mid August last year. Car was potent in a straight line, but needed the handling sorted out. But initially, I wanted the handbrake and calipers sorted out as it as a pain for the MOT. So went to TD. I too wanted to fit the ZR 160 carriers and calipers. Standard had always been using half a pad due to the hubs (I was fitting them wrong apparently).

Doing bits like rack (inner tie rod on passenger side worked out to be too short for TRE), UJ and chargecooler over winter

But the VAG conversion has been a success. Goes like stink once turbo kicks in. A puppy to drive round town. Except for the clutch, very stiff. Another project for another day.
