The first versions had some basic info, the new pages are much better.

They include direct links to the product so you can quickly compare prices, specs, notes, etc. It's similar to the vortex big brake page but it has direct links and some more kits that aren't on the vortex page. It also has notes specific for TDI applications.

They are organized by rotor size, OEM and aftermarket are separated into to different charts. The reason why is because you can often buy OEM parts used or more cheaply than aftermarket parts.

Yes, I am aware.

Part of the issue is the vendor's sites don't allow direct links, they require you to go through a menu. For those vendors, I put the link to the closest menu. Another issue was that when I published the page, a few links changed for some strange reason. I checked every link before publishing but after it went up, the link had some stuff added to it. No idea why, fixed now.

I'm not 100% clear, can you reuse the stock TDI caliper with a new carrier and spindle or do you need to get new calipers too?

You cannot reuse the stock front TDI caliper in the mk4 at all, you can reuse the stock front TDI caliper in the mk3 in some kits but it might be 2mm too narrow.

Edited both articles, added some more kits.

I also made clear in the article that the mk4 , you cannot reuse your stock TDI calipers.
