    LCR Brembo's or Brembo GT jnrs, which are basically the same. The S3 should have come with these as standard!

    As above. LCR 4 pots compliment the S3 perfectly.

    And I can vouch for the DS2500s for fast road and the occasional track day usage. Bill also has 330mm 2 piece discs aswell if you are feeling flush. Save around 2kg a side in unsprung weight!
