Re: 4 pots 996

You can do an oem upgrade to 345mm on the front using w8 uprights, calipers then using merc sl500 discs
It is a heavy set up and means a minimum of 17" wheel but works great

Re: Passat b5.5 rear light bulbs

Is there a way to make the brake light at the top 2 bulbs so the light is a full circle?
I get it's not strictly legal as the brake light and fog would be too close.
