    Breaks & discs upgrade for S3 2001 model

    I have had my 2001 model S3 for 2 months. It has the standard discs and breaks on it, which to be honest aren't the best I have come across.
    Any suggestions on upgrades? Something better that wont break the bank.

    Thanks

    Ian

    Have a look at the "Definitive brake guide" thread in the FAQ/stickies at the top of the page.

    Are you thinking about just upgrading the discs, pads, and fluid, or the calipers?
