easier to just fit VWII's (G40 ones) to be honest, Golf rears can be used for a rear disk conversion.

sorry for intruding on this thread. Just as a matter of interest - how hard is it to actually convert to discs in the back? (Golf Mk3, and Ibiza, the same maybe? or might be a polo 16V kinda thing?)

all mk2 golf GTI 8v and early 16vs came with VWII calipers which are pretty much g40 ones only differences is that the golf ones uses a 7mm hex bolt were as the g40s are 6mm.

as for the rears u use a mk2 gti set us again but you need to fabricate a bracket for the handbrake also a sirrico hand brake fits in some were.

its a pretty big job!! not worth doing really i wouldnt want discs on the back just because there so light at the rear.
