Hi Guys, I thinking to buy some Mk2 Gti rotors n calipers (hub included)
I know tho outer cv is larger than my stock ones, wasnt thinking to use the Gti hubs. I'm wondering if I can just remove my rotors n calipers and replace them with the Gti :| Thanks :)

Negative. the gt rotor is bigger and the caliper mount is a little different.

Yea Iknow the Gti rotor is larger(reason for swap). I want to know if the Gti rotor can fit on my hub and I'm using the gti caliper.

If you use the gti hubs then you'll need gti axles as the outer cv is bigger, you can mount the gti calipers onto the swift hubs but the problem is the mounting for the caliper is closer to the hub, if you get about 5mm??? machined off the diameter of the gti rotors then you can bolt the gti calipers to the non gti hubs, you'll have 245mm rotors instead of 250mm rotors but everything will work.

5mm is going to make f### all difference, either that or find gti driveshafts and change everything over.

i did that on my blue vert. the mounting holes for the brake yoke are just a bit closer to the center. i peeled 3 mm off the radius of the rotors and everything fits fine. the brakes work super.
