Rear brakes

I have a 2007 v6 touareg with 330mm dia. rear brake rotors with calipers 7l6615423J (left) and 7l6615424J (right) it is a single piston and am interested in upgrading to a multi piston caliper. Before i order the wrong thing are the oem 4 piston calipers interchangeable with the single piston?

Why 4 piston on the rear? The front brakes do the majority of the braking.

X2.

One or two people have upgraded their front brakes.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

Yes.... but only if slowing down while travelling in a forward direction.... maybe he's a stunt driver and does high speed passes in reverse?!?!!?!!?!

I guess it could also help when towing heavy loads.... that's all I've got.

Here you go bud.... I've even "spec'd" out a kit for you, but you can build your own..... they even do payments if needed.

Make sure to report back with the new stopping distances vs stock so the rest of us know.
