    S3 brake caliper carriers

    Hi guys, just taken off my wheels to change my discs, pads and fluid, checked the size of my new discs against the old ones and it appears someone has fitted 288mm discs to my s3, it also has a different hub on one side, probably from a 1.8t, god knows why they've done this, anyway I'm now looking for s3 carriers so I can use my 312mm discs, does anyone have or know where I can them? Thanks

    umm, the geometry is totally different on the normal A3 hubs, you need that fixing ASAP.

    Its probably been crashed into a kerb or something, and they've been complete retards and replaced the hub etc with A3/Golf bits.

    This, you need S3 hubs, S3 lower arms with adjustable slots for the ball joints.
