Old VW's do this all the time. Grab the calipers, carriers and rotors off of a Corrado G60, and install on your Rabbit. You need at least 15" wheels, but it was worth it.

I don't know if there are larger brakes that bolt on, but you could research the mounting and find out.
aluminum hats on the rotors and lighter calipers = saving weight
