I built a set for a MKII a few years ago. They were ok, but the work I went through was a lot. In the end , I feel unless you are really driving your car hard..like on a racetrack(and it has to be a very wicked track and car) you don't need them. There has never been a time when I was driving on the street and said "danged I wish I had rear disc. I do drive pretty hard on the street sometimes but most times I only drive hard on the track.


Same here. I drive hard on some California mountain roads when I'm there, and after upgrading to "performance" rear shoes, I feel I've got plenty of brakes.
JR, you would love Waterford Hills. 13 turns in a mile and a half. Rear discs can be appreciated there.
