Got a question about the handbrake for the rear swap.
I've swapped my front and rear brakes into EVO 3 ones. 276 mm and 260 mm width. Also got the EVO handbrake cable fitted but doesn't work properly. If i put my car on handbrake, the car still rolls, if you know what i mean,,

Anyone has a solution for this? Because now my car can't get it's yearly checkin points (APK in Holland we say)


Thanks!

You need GTi cables.
