Those are 16" stock wheels so yes the brakes are smaller. There is an option to upgrade the front brakes which works well with the 17" Aracaju wheels on the Editions Pack Coast.
I also have a T6.1 LHD Coast or order. Are you registering it in the UK? Have you enquired about insurance? I'll have to investigate this myself depending on my country of residence in September.
Hey @Corradobrit are you sure these are 16”? Would be really happy to hear of a 4Motion with 16s as that would help with my change of tyres on the imminent beach arrival. Much more choice for a decent overlanding tyre in 16s. (My raptor in picture was running 35” tyres on 16” rims!)

Standard wheels on the Cali are 16x6.5 steel.

4Motion? We had this debate a few months ago and never got a satisfactory resolution, probably because of UK specs. Will be happy to know I can get a set of 16s, may have to go steal @Tomato s wheels!

Have decided that the two tone white over red with the white Discus wheels isnt for me anymore. The wheels looked fabulous on the white 6.1 but the basic looking Coast with no foglights has so little chrome I'm going down the Red Van with no chrome blacked out look instead...so I'll debadge, a tiny bit of black only wrapping to the B post and chrome grill bars and get meself some pimped black transporter looking alloys instead bruv' that 'll look bangin' as well as making my £55,000 California look very like a £25,000 VW transporter. Plus there might be a glimpse of the big red front brake upgrade through my new alloys unlike the Discus cover all option.

Great choice. My satin black HRE P40S will be going on the Pure Grey Cali Coast Edition. They are similar to these Screen Shot 2021-02-27 at 9.01.56 AM.png

My 2021 Cali is a few weeks old so the steelies wont be too much of an earlier gen model I hope...anyway due to arrive end of the month on a lorry from Germany so will check

Will be getting rid of the discus AND the steelies to fund black batmobile style alloys....might add a red plastic Gator rim protector for added red black theme harmony

Quite like the idea of BBS weight appropriate alloys to keep it OEM / VW semi approved but I do know HRE are of suitably high quality...

My last 6.1 had Edition stripes, I think I will go the Transporter look, maybe with REVO or 4motion badge on my bangin’ sport stripe

I think removing the California rear badge will immediately negate any polite, courteous driving...so bring on the remap and slam this fully sick bad boy onto Bentley 22’s and let’s get the fam tailgating on the M25 in freezing fog bruv’

Hi Tomato, can I ask about the small rear gas sticker on the tailgate - do we have to leave that on there do you know? thanks

This looks absolutely awesome. Do you know if the colour is ascot grey or candy white? Looks like an off white.
I think I read you cant spec an Edition in Ascot Grey, so think it must be Candy White

My old 6.1 Edition Beach was indeed Candy White but with a black roof that gently bakes sleeping occupants with even the tiniest bit of sunlight. Just saw a very new 70 plate Ocean in Cobham in what looked like Ascot Grey...looked different but good

Hi, very good point...best I leave it as a courtesy to any EU emergency services deciding who to rescue first that might want to know that the smouldering wreck of a red VW has a gas canister on board...

Yes a strange choice VW made to complicate Editions with a black roof. A white roof I could understand...
Love Ascot Grey

Looks ok on the Disci wheels but they’re for the chop! Have ordered black plastic wheel arch kit and had the Range Rover 20’s blacked….it’s gonna be bad bruv’

All that chrome’s going too including anything that says California - my mission to make it look like a £25k van well advanced now. Huge rear roof spoiler also being made ready.

Look forward to seeing it, but
I love those discus wheels
What will you change those side chrome California pieces near the side indicators for? Black Transporter ones?
