    8L S3 Brake Upgrade.

    Hi All,
    Going to upgrade the brakes on the S3.My car is a 2002 225 plus its mapped,miltek system,sports cat,panel filter.Not used for track days,mainly the odd fast road jaunt.
    Just wanted a bit of feedback as to what setups others use and how effective they are..
    Probably asked a thousand times on here but after using the search tool I couldnt find a definitive "best choice accross the board"
    Anyways..
    Looking at 2 possible options; Either going for some EBC ULTIMAX discs and upgrade pads.(redstuff maybe)
    Or Going for the R32 front setup? Either way upgrading the fluid aswell.
    I would be interested to know what you guys thought..

    Are they free then? If so I'll gladly have them.

    Yes mate well up for a blazingsmoke hook up, I can see her point it was a bit strange but I think you could be more infamous rather than famous??? Lol

    Exactly!

    Basingstoke meet up will happen once Nick is back, can't leave him out of any action.

    I think he is back in action early next week, I have had some updates from Spa and I can confirm he is getting on OK.

    Just to add. I have put up for sale threads in the classified section previously and had absolutely no reply. I mention it in a post and I get inundated with people inquiring about them. Goes to show how broken the classified section is(I have a few ideas on how this could be fixed).
