Xin selected StopTech’s 328x25mm (1-piece rotor) ST-41 Big Brake Kit for his VW GTI, a great way to improve on the stock brake components without breaking the bank. The kits are available for front axle applications and include StopTech 1-piece Sport Rotors, StopTech ST-41 powder-coated four-piston calipers with the patented stiffening bridge, StopTech Street Performance brake pads for extended high performance street driving as well as occasional track use, StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines, plus all necessary brackets and hardware to complete the job.
The stiff 2-piece, fully-forged calipers have designated piston sizes specific to this application and provide a firmer, more responsive brake pedal that provides better brake pedal modulation. The larger 328x25mm directionally-vaned 1-piece StopTech Sport Rotors, available in slotted or drilled finishes, provide greater heat capacity and reduced brake fade. Also assisting in fade resistance and higher performance are the StopTech Street Performance Pads which have a high maximum operating temperature and high bite for responsive brakes that can be driven hard. The included StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines reduce system compliance and help provide a firmer pedal with a more immediate and better modulated response to inputs. Available and in stock today at Achtuning, these “entry level” StopTech big brake kits expand our offerings in the high performance aftermarket brake segment, covering not only the Mk5 and Mk6 VW GTI, but also certain EOS, Jetta, Beetle, and Audi A3 applications.
The weight difference between the StopTech ST-41 BBK compared to the GTI’s stock components is also worth noting:

We got the call from Adrian around 7pm Thursday evening. He mentioned he would be finishing up a military training session at 2am in LA that next morning, then arriving in Seattle early Friday. He asked what we might be able to do for his recently purchased Mk4 GTI. As it turned out, we had plenty readily available for him to get a good jump-start on his modding bug.Adrian ended up spending a big portion of his day with Achtuning as he asked us to transform his VW Mk4 GTI into an even better performing European hot hatch, courtesy of a Stasis Streetsport Coil-Over Kit and APR ECU Upgrade.
To Adrian’s surprise, we found that the GTI he picked up used had already been equipped with APR software, just locked out. We glady unlocked his software for him which opened up the budget for more performance parts. As it turned out, the brakes were also in need of attention and since we had a couple of StopTech’s 328x28mm Big Brake Kits on the shelf, he decided to go for it!
Adrian will have a chance to test out StopTech’s claims of having the best over-all braking distance improvement without the worry of over-working the master cylinder as brake bias is kept balanced with the appropriately sized brake pistons for the Mk4. Having larger, cleaner, and bright red calipers to show off that stopping power is just icing on the cake!

A while back we sold a set of StopTech Big Brakes to Lucasz, a Mk5 Jetta TDI owner who lives north of our border. He posted up the post-install pictures and we had to share them, especially considering the quality of his photos and how well the car has come along…
The StopTech Big Brake Kit consists of 328x28mm slotted two-piece rotors, stainless-steel braided brake lines, ceramic brake pads, and those gorgeous 4-piston calipers powder-coated silver to match the theme of Lucasz’ Jetta.
