    S3 Brake upgrade

    Hi
    Can anyone recommend a front brake disc, calliper and pad upgrade for my 2000year S3? The standard ones are burnt out from track days so I'm looking for a reasonably priced upgrade that'll work for road and track.
    Many thanks
    James

    the 4 pot brembo GT kit from a seat leon cupra R is a popular choice, not sure about the normal cost though
    S3 AMK
    Bilstein B8's & Eibach Springs, Neuspeed ARB's (22mm front & 19mm rear).

    Badger 5's Machined Discs with DS2500 pads & HEL braided lines.

    about 1000 i believe these days. Probably the most cost effective solution these days as you can get replacement discs for a good price (134/set for OEM discs or 200/set for drilled slotted, or just slotted)

    The other alternative is to buy a set of brackets from MBT (www.mbt-engineering.de) yo would need the MBT-140 bracket, and find some porsche calipers and some discs of your choice. MBT drill the bracket to the correct dimensions depending on the caliper and disc combo. A good upgrade would be Boxster S calipers and Leon Cupra R discs. Probably work out cheaper than the kit...Maybe
    IHI-VF34 + RACELOGIC + Parada SpecII = Who needs Quattro?! 0-60 5.1s @ Inters '06

    Thought of the month: People need to understand what is meant by 'Build Thread'...
