    Personally would recommend the R32 Calipers with the Cupra discs.

    Direct fitment I believe and better than the standard S3 brakes.

    people rave about black diamond discs and ferodo pads which are meant to be good,or if your not after discs then ferodo pads should make a difference

    Yes mate, the pads will make the most difference anyway. Just make sure you use good quality standard/plain disks.
