    Do S4 Calipers fit the S3s as a possible front brake upgrade?

    S3 rotor is too thin for S4 caliper, because there is 321x30mm rotor in S4. Im using cupra ibiza brembo caliper with original size S3 rotor.

    And if you are going to use some other rotor than S3 original then there are many better calipers than those S4 ones.
    Im now collecting parts for my new brakes and im going to use R32 rotor with Cayenne 6-pot caliper.

    You could also use Leon Cupra R 323x28 rotor and Porsche Boxter caliper which could easily be found from ebay.

    Triple_A do these simply bolt on or do you need mounting brackets?

    Yes, those cayenne calipers needs custom mounting brackets, which im going to do myself.
    Those ibiza brembos that i have also needs custom brackets. I designed those myself and I have drawings for those if someone needs...

    If you want bolt-on OEM brakes you could use R32 rotors, R32 calipers and R32 caliper carriers.
