Why not wade through the relevant schematics on this very useful website... 

http://www.lingshond.../car-parts.html

 

If/when you find a schematic that's useful, then delete the characters '_pfk' from the URL and all the Lings part numbers will magically become Honda part numbers, which you can then use to search for a cheaper supplier.

Looks completed. Was just wondering if a twin from a mk7 fitted a mk8. I know there different parts numbers.

Maybe one from a Ford or a Vauxhall might fit? Why limit yourself to bodging on only random Honda parts?

Wow thats not very nice. It is a genuine question. The same could be said for brake upgrades like the gen6 twinpots on the gen7. its not bodging if it fits and does the same job/improves the looks/performance.

Neither is it very nice to comment 'looks complicated' (and give no thanks) when provided with a link to schematics that would give someone an idea about whether different Honda parts might fit.

 

Actually, I've long considered that the commonly-discussed fitting of ATR front calipers to 7th gen models IS a bodge, given that the brake fluid proportioning system rarely seems to be replaced or altered. Too much brake fluid is subsequently sent to the rear.
