    Front brakes

    Hi folks,

    If i buy a Brembo front brake calipers from a Cupra r what else do i need to fit then to my 2001 S3.
    I have stock 17" Avus so what is the best disc size to get, best pads, do i need carriers for the calipers or do they fit straight on? do The Brembo calipers come with braide hoses so will they connect upto my brake fittings or what do i need to get.
    Sorry if this has been covered before but there are pages and pages of answers.

    You need calipers, caliper carriers and hoses.
    Cheapest discs are 323mm, but you can run up to 330mm although the latter are a lot more expensive as they tend to be 2 piece and hence low volume. In 323mm size you can get Brembo, EBC etc. discs. I'm currently running a set of these: Front Leon Cupra R Grooved Godspeed Discs - Godspeed Brakes following a bad experience with EBCs.
    Pads - again, depends how much you want to spend, but Ferodo DS2500 gets my vote (run them on both S3 and trackday Cordoba). Worth it IMHO.
    Hoses - Bill @Badger 5 does the braided hoses (and pads and discs as well).
    Oh, and I know you didn't ask, but to clarify, the Brembos fit OK behind the 17inch Avus fine.
