    Icon12 St165 twin pot brake calipers

    Afternoon gents. I'm looking at upgrading the brakes on my mk1 v6 I'm thinking the st165 calipers are my best option as I don't do track days just country lane runs. Does anyone have a spare set laying around also if there's a 15/16 master cylinder going spare I'll happily take it.
    Thanks

    Hi Angpozzuto

    I realise my post is not the most helpful. But I must share my experience for the sake of my mental health.

    Back in 2012 or 2013, I was hunting for some twinpot GT4 calipers. They were fitted to both ST165 and early ST185. I preferred these over the ST185 conversion because:

    • I do not weld
    • I do not drill holes in my brake discs


    It took me months to find a set eventually in... ...Malaysia.

    I had to import them.

    Joyfully though, they just bolt on with a strategically placed washer to move them outboard 2mm.

    The place in Malasia was WCTS Multiservizi or something like that.

    OK - rambling now. Beer talking. Point is, you might have to think laterally to get hold of a set these days.


    Good luck

    Thanks for your input d2w. I've seen them listed on the tcb website so hopefully they'll have a set in stock if I can't get them anywhere else. If it becomes too much of a struggle I could go for the wms kit but it seems like overkill to me.

    Quick question can the st185 single pots be used with the 258mm mk1 discs or will I need to get a set of st185 discs redrilled
