I'm currently in the process of upgrading my brakes, and i have been trying to find out as much as possible from this forum, but there does not seem to be a lot of info on it, so i thought it would be a good idea to get all the info in one place.
Heres all the brake sizes on the VAG range, and what they are fitted to as standard.
