    A3 front pads

    Evening...im carrying out the s3 front brake upgrade this week on my 2001 a3. 1.8T. Carriers i have, 312mm discs i have just need pads.

    As above mate, you just need the calipers and the discs, you can use your original calipers, so no need to mess about with brake lines. Pads are what you would use with your standard setup.

    I can confirm that 16" wheels clear 312s radially, as I ran a set of 16" Golf4 V6 4Motion alloys on my S3 during a wheel refurb many years ago. I see no reason why the stock 16s would be a problem, but needs confirming non the less.
