yup. The '82 uses the cheesy little solid rotor. By '84 you have the
vented rotor of the same diameter on 4x100. I think it uses the same
rotor, with thinner pads maybe? I didn't think it would hit the sheild
though, but then again I never tried it.
'85 and on get a larger rotor, vented, on 4x108.
you can use the '85 on caliper (4kq caliper as well) on your coupe with
16v scirocco rotors which are 4x100, it is a worthwhile improvement.
