I am not sure if the Scirocco 16V front brakes or the GTI rear brakes
will fit on the 4000 quattro.  You will have to do a little investigative
work yourself.  Chances are, the fronts might fit fine, but the rears
probably won't.  The GTI rear discs are 8.9" diameter.  I don't have
my 4000 quattro literature handy right now so I don't know the size
of your rear discs.  You can probably just go measure it yourself.
