Quick update for anyone following this thread.
I have fitted and bled the new generic master cylinder and feel the brakes are the best they have ever been in terms of pedal height, and performance.
Sailed through its MOT.
The only issue I could foresee for others is the dummy outlets on the offside could foul the bonnet of earlier Cabrio, which have a parallel faced pedal box (to the bulkhead). Some later Cabrios - mine was the last made - had an angled face, providing greater clearance between the end of the master cylinder and the bonnet inside.
I would suggest even if fouling proves to be an issue, the dummy offside outlet bulge could be ground off, as it is only there to allow one common casting to be machined as either RHD, or LHD.
Has anyone else fitted the new one yet?
