    S4 Rear 300mm Conversion Kit Completed

    Well, as some of you will know i was developing a kit to fit 300mm S4 discs to my 2001 S3,
    On friday afternoon i decided to trial fit the kit on my car...
    All has gone well. There was, one thing i had almost forgotten was the hand brake cable needing "tweeking " but the ECS kit covers the same "tweek"
    The kit i made ...


    This shows the Re PCD'd discs, The brackets and the Spigot rings needed,

    This was my old 256 mm set up before i removed it, ( with Porsche PDC adaptors fitted )


    The Caliper bracket fitted to my car...

    Side shot of the bracket fitted

    The kit fitted and read to be tested...


    Ive covered about 50 miles since fitting the kit and ive had it checked over by a good mechanic i use, He was more than happy , So im happy, The car feels slightly better balanced not but the pads are nowhere near bedded in yet, Everything works well, I will post pictures of the car with the wheels on once ive washed it in the morning.
    They fill the wheels much better ,
    Im a very happy camper.

    When you have given it a proper test and a spirited drive would be interesting to see your feedback, looks good though mate.

    Thanks for the replys people
    Today i decided to push the car a little more as all felt well.
    The results are... All is well, car does feel like it can shed speed much faster, There doesnt feel to be a massive change in brake balance ( a good thing) i even tried slamming on mid corner when i found a wide open quiet corner... Nothing scary happened. So im happy, Here are a few pictures of the car with the kit fitted...






    I am planning to and happy to make a few of these kits up if people are intrested.
    Obviously if there is intrest for a group buy i will contact admin. to get an ok first,

    Im happy with the look,
    But im just as happy with the more balanced feel to the car.
    I would probably have liked to have had the discs grooved to match the fronts. But for now im happy.
    There was 2 realy slight issues in the fitting of this kit but both were easily overcome in about 20 mins,
    firstly i hadnt realised the carrier bolts had a captive washer built onto them so my counter bore for the bolt wasnt big enough diameter , luckily for me there is an old guy a few unit down who had a lathe, i turned the washer down so all was good. In future im looking to increase the counterbore size so all is good, the second issue was the hand brake cable. A quick call to a lad who had fitted a couple of ECS kits told me all i needed to know ( this info was also in the last thread regarding this set up ) a quick trim of the over sheath before the rear arm and all was good.
    happy days !

    Thanks Bill
    I would love to at a later date be able to find a 2 piece rear disc set up, ( probably more your area than mine ) to compliment the kit.
    Ive been in talks with admin. regarding offering a group buy to members on here,
    A couple of point mentioned i may not have been clear on. The brackets are STEEL i coated them with "cool Galv" to rust proof them so i could fit them for testing on my own car,
    The plan ( i can not guarantee to be as cheap as i hope ) to be able to offer the kit with Zinc plated brackets.
    Regarding replacement parts ( discs and spigot rings ) i am happy to suply these as long as people need them , I plan to offer a new pair of spigots with any discs i suply these would probably not be needed but there if the customer feels they are, This would be at a price agree'd that covers my costs ,
    The kit im thinking as a ball park figure will cost including discs £160
    The kit will include
    A pair of caliper brackets
    Bolts to mount the brackets to the hub
    A pair of spigot rings to mount the S4 discs to the S3 hubs
    S4 300 mm discs Re PCD'd to 5x100
    I will be offering the Zinc plating at an extra £15 for the brackets and possible Stainless Steel Spigot rings but im unsure of the cost yet for material.

    If anybody is intrested please let me know,
    Either in this thread or via PM
    I would ask for a deposit of £65 for the outlay of the discs as the material i can pay on account , With the balance ( and postage costs ) paid before dispatch,

    I'm not sure if these ever went into mass production and I don't remember a group buy

    Might be worth dropping Paul a PM as he doesn't seem too active on ASN at the moment.

    Hello all.
    I've been far too preoccupied with houses and family stuff.
    I told people in good faith I would make a couple of these kits up.
    I'm sorry I haven't been in touch,
    If anybody still wants one please let me know,
    Very sorry again,
