Hey everyone...<p>I'm ordering rotors and pads for my 2005 T5 FWD, and I want to be sure what brakes I have up front. The websites keep telling me that I have 320's up front, but I went out to the car and tried to eyeball the measurement. It seemed to be just under a foot (300mm after conversion is 11.8 inches), which leads me to believe that I have the 300's up front. Is there a specific way to tell without pulling off the rim and actually measuring? <p>Thanks

Re: 300mm? 320mm? How exactly can I tell? (S40Racer)

IIRC if you have the 4 piston calipers you have the 320mm rotors. If you have the 2 piston calipers then you have the 300mm rotors. <p>It's been about a year with out my S40 so I may be wrong so don't base anything off what I just said. So My post was entirely useless, unless I'm correct then it is not useless. But I dont know if I'm correct so it may verry well be a wast of time to read at all. I just confused myself <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Get some sleep Matt, lol. I also am not sure which models have what, I think the AWD has the 320 though, so if you measured and it looks like 300 it probably is...

Roger that AJ! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>But first, didn't the S40's with DSTC have the 320mm rotors and the S40's with STC have the 300mm Rotors? I think all AWD S40 have DSTC and it was an option on the FWD S40's.

To my understanding AWD came with 320 mm but just to make sure dealer should be able to help you with your VIN#.

Re: (05T5)

Perfect. Thanks for the help guys... I asked the tech at the dealer today, and he looked it up for me. 300mm it is... and now I have another sweet upgrade to look forward to! haha

i have a set to sell (cheaper than IPD). <p>It's easy to tell if you have 17" the wheels are almost filled by the brakes. If you have 300mm there is a noticiable gap.
