Since I like to push my car hard - overheating of brakes are usual problem (especially in mountains where I spent most of time).

I upgraded my brake system to ceramic brake-pads with grooved discs. Overheating has been slightly reduced.

I wonder if fix, 2-4 piston, callipers deliver better heat dissipation.

I removed the dust covers and installed ducting to the centre of the discs as well as upgrading to 4 piston and larger diameter front disce with a bias adjuster to adjust pressure to get the best result.
The bias adjuster may not be legal on a road car in your country .

Bigger discs will naturaly be able to soak up/absorb more heat.

thanks for reply.

I've been thinking about ducting for a while as a part of Dural engine cover :eek:)

I guess a fix 2-4 pistons calliper would be better than usual VW float one piston calliper
