try the usual places, VWHeritage, Coolair, Custom and Commercial Ect. Make them the first port of call for most things you need, if they cant help they can often recommend a supplier. I often find euro car parts can be helpful, just make sure you check the part quality before buying.

Rumour has it that an E30 caliper can be used

Have a read of this thread.... the subject has been covered before and there are some useful links. If the car's not needed as a daily dfriver then I would go the refurb route

Most of us have spare calipers eligible for rebuilding knocking around
