You can also tell your car is equipped with ABS as you brake hard and the pedal kicks your foot back and vibrates...

with any car to see if you have abs when you turn ignitio on then orange abs light will briefly come on dash board.

if you don't have it no abs light will come on!

this is a good thing to look for when buying a car

ha, well thats fair enough. i just decided i wanted to do something fun, so spent a couple hundred quid and got on with it :lol: took me 4 hours. and the best bit is the new handbrake cable.

No difference in the braking power compared to the drums, just looks better.

i did start a post about the conversion on here but never got round to finishing it :lol:

i upgraded the disks and calipers on my passat before i sold it to bigger 312mm ones wasnt hard to do but after wards i expected to notice a difference and i didnt so i kinda thought what was the point in getting bigger alloys etc to accomodate and i dont feel the difference it did look better though
