Based on the EBC Macan pad fitment on 345s; a 340 rotor should work without pad overhang. I'll run the 345s this time, but will likely switch to 340s next time.
Mk5 R32/Mk6R 345mm dust shields will not work unfortunately. I flattened the lip on my 312 shields for now, but will be ordering 340mm PP GTI dust shields.
The hardest part of the install was the retaining pins. I placed a Craftsman 3/8" extension that had a small bevel on the socket end of it against the pin then hit the extension with a hammer to prevent damage to the caliper finish.
Neuspeed brake lines get here Monday or Tuesday then I'll get to try the new setup out!

Bleed them based on the instructions in the first post. It's the most crucial thing to get stock like feel.
