Have a 05 GLI MKIV. I few months back I bought a whole brake kit meaning rotors and pads for front and back. I already had my car up and wheels off ready to take the old sets apart. Only to find that my new rotors and pads where smaller than the ones already installed. So my question is does anybody know the measurements to the rotors and pads? Also a link for how to do the brake swap? Thanks in advance.

The GLI brake pads and rotors are bigger than the normal 2.0 engines.
You have to make sure you ordered the rotors/pads for a GLI model. Same thing happened to me when I ordered pads and rotors for my 06 Jetta.
The GLI has bigger calipers due to it having more power.
