As title, I need a pair of new front brake callipers and have found a pair but I am led to believe they are for a 1.8. Will they bolt straight on? Btw, my car is a mk1! Cheers

no. the calipers are not a direct swap.

what you also would need is the 1.8 caliper carrier brackets, that the 1.8 calipers bolt to (hard to find).

if you can only find the 1.8 carrier brackets (unlikly), then you can use your 1.6 calipers (possibly swaping sides), and bigger disks instead.

someone correct me if im worng.

I think you would be OK if you bought a pair but you would have to swap your 1.6 carrier brackets over to opposite sides as the bolt / slider pins are at different ends.
