VW Brake Pads and Rotors
I purchased Ceramic Brake Pads and Rotors for my 2008 VW Beetle for a total price of $114.95. Comparable parts at my local O'Reilly Auto Parts were quoted to me for $247.00. The parts arrived within 3 days and my mechanic was impressed with the quality of the parts. They sure feel great when I apply them, no brake noise, smooth stop, and just all around exceptionally happy with the whole experience.

Best Car Part Website Domain
I searched on the internet for a brake kit, a fairly priced pair. I found myself on 1aauto & watched the how-to videos for my specific kit ('03 VW Jetta.) The videos were super informative, listing the tools you need, & it gave me the ability of performing it on my own instead of spending money at a repair shop. After my repair was done, I tested my brakes & was extremely with the quality of the brakes. I bought other parts from here so I'm really excited about my future with this website & DIY car repair.

Does this kit also fit the 2.0 motor? I don't know why it wouldn't but I just want to be sure since I didn't see it listed here.

BEST ANSWER: It appears that this will not fit a 2.0L engine, and the differences may be the overall diameter of the rotor or size of the pad. If you would like to contact a customer service representative using our phone number we would be more than happy to assist you in finding the correct parts.
