They should be 312mm

well this is an easy way to tell, compare the MK5 312mm setup brake clearance to the polo cup edition gap. the polo really does look like it's only 288mm


This is by no means an absolute science, only reference. But if someone can get me a cup edition, chassis number I can confirm what size the brakes are.

My understanding is the cup comes with front 312mm discs so the parts are the same as the TT etc

 I found some discs on ebay and ebay usa.

Looks like the ones.

Complete change of plan today, cancelled the cup edition, k's were too high and the dealer was a twat, cam belt had never been done at 157 k's and the dealer refused to do it. Time to walk away, bought a 3 door red gti polo instead 84 k's on it full leather full history one owner, pick her up on the weekend, anyone got any thoughts on super chips and bluefin ? Gotta get that bhp back up to cup edition 180 standards.:)

Congrats on the purchase :) Superchips have a very good rep. You shouldn't be disappointed. For the Money you could also look at APR i think the 2 are roughly the same price for the map *could be wrong* also another good well known company. Have a chat to polo_GTI he's used Superchips Bluefin and has a pretty quick Polo GTI.

Go APR, bluefin is ok but APR has more options down the line and you can have multiple maps etc (Valet, 95, 98ron etc)

I have Revo stage 2 for Polo GTI. Now cat less and full exhaust done its an absolute go kart. Fuel economy is still reasonable too. It's an aggressive tune but I love it.

Bluefin stage 1 on Golf GTI. Very smooth tune quoted 40-45hp gain so must be sitting around 240hp.

I think you made a right call on a nice one with less mileage and leather interior! Congrats!

Picked her up this afternoon from Eurocity VAG dealer in Napier, can I just say this firstly a huge thank you to Dwayne the sales manager their, how bloody nice, friendly, accommodating, negotiable down right human he was, I can't recommend him enough, the car was perfect as he described it was even fully polished and with a full tank to get me back to Auckland he even picked me and my mrs up from the bus stop in Napier , but as for the Auckland car yards I visited especially a certain one with a cup edition shame on you all !!! you clearly think that selling me a car is some how doing me a favour or that somehow I owe you my money your service attitude and inability to even pretend to be human left me more than a little disappointed. Anyway bitching over with,  the car is really lovely with leather, 3 door ( just like in pom land) sunroof, cruise control, fuel computer I think I have died and gone to VAG heaven.
Also would like to say a big thank you to the members in here for all the  good advice and also the guys at platinum vw, cheers.

Well let the tinkering begin. APR here I come !!!

Great! Nice looking car with full options! I do like the leather! Did an Australian owner bring it in when moving to Nz?

Nice car.....another member confirming my historical and current thoughts on dealership d^*#heads...what is with the attitude? Must be a serious case of over use of hair gel and aftershave seeping into the bloodstream and working its way to the small brain at the top. Back to the car...love Polo's and red suits well...have fun!
