    Think they are actually vented:big grin:

    Quite funny seeing it next to the STi with its Brembos.

    I feel no shame:big grin:

    But they are pretty damn effective, despite their comical size. They lack a bit of feel, but barreling into a tight corner they really do work.

    :fawk: you guys :)

    Dont know the actual size, cant find the techinical data for them. Also I dont have a ruler with small enough measurements to do it myself:big grin:

    Part of the problem of me driving the Polo is the temptation to drive it like the STi, hence the "barrelling into tight corners". It is quite entertaining to drive though, if you ignore the body-roll and suspension float. And the tendency to pick the back wheel up mid-corner.
