Are kits available for a big brake upgrade on the front of a Syncro? And is the task tricky or fairly straight forward?
yes i have, R4950 for a complete kit, easy to fit, supply everything you need, calipers discs spacers and pipes.

BUT then you need to upgrade to 15" wheels, ie 5x new rims and 5x new tyres, have a set of 5 VW 15" starburst mags at R4k, some may need starightening

Hi Stuart, thanks, is that for new or used (the brake kit)?
Hi Sam

calipers are used, discs, pads, pipes spacers are new.

I see, are the calipers Audi? What make discs?
combi, calipers also combi
Cool. I'm attempting to source a pair of standard discs within KZN in order to keep cost to a minimum and get the Syncro back on the road ASAP. But this may fail and force me (it may even make economic sense) to go with the upgrade.
14" discs are no longer available, last ones were R1800 each, 5 years ago

Do yourself a favour and speak to the bank manager if you have to. Big brakes are the way to go. Even when my bus is fully loaded for a trip, it still stops incredible well. Did it on the doka as well. Day and night difference to 14" brakes .
