    Re: big brakes

    Porsche will need spacers.

    But they are the best brakes. I had never heard anyone have issues with them.

    The price is 1087+vat delivered to your door!

    Can also do the Stage 3 kit, which consists of Porsche 993T callipers, and 320mm 2 piece discs, and again, everything else you need for the installation for 1162+vat delivered

    Oh and by the way... the Stage 3 kit is the same kit as other tuning companies are selling for 1375+vat! Thats a 213 difference BEFORE vat!

    Re: big brakes

    just looked
    Another ECS Tuning Exclusive. The ECS Stage 4 Big Brake kit for the Volkswagen MKIV 1.8T and VR6 and Audi TT. Built around ECSs latest TruFloat rotor technology for superior stopping performance, minimal mass gain and greater cooling. Taking advantage of the light weight nature of our 2 piece rotor designs weve expanded the rotor diameter to 14 (355x35mm). Increased mechanical advantage means more consistence, shorter stopping distances.

    The position on the ball joint. Its further out on the Quattro, so creates a clearance problem with the discs!

    They have only, in the last couple of weeks, made the Stage 2v2 kit for the TT. I guess that the rotor hat along with the calliper bracket are different.

    Am I right in thinking the Brembo GT kit is 6 pot calipers, the AmD version for 750 supplied is 4 pot calipers?

    Rich... YOUR website states "Brembo GT kit". This I take it is the 6 pot calipers... if so I'll take a set off you at your advertised supplied price of 750! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Will the floating disks from the proper Gran Turismo kit fit with the calipers from the AmD GT kit?

    AmD's GT kit.. isnt quite the GT kit. As far as im aware, the AmD kit is more like the Leon Cupra R kit which uses solid discs, not floating, and slightly different hardware, The calliper, i believe is bigger on the GT kit also.

    Re: big brakes

    why not fit a nice set of AP-Racing brakes, they do a 6pot caliper and 330mm disc that fits the standard 17" wheel and will be much lighter than any porsche/brembo kit/calipers

    Re: big brakes

    SO ESS_Three,

    You think the Brembo GT's is fine for road and just enough for a chipped S3. I'm thinking of getting porsche ones but as you said the price is hell of a lot [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].

    is there a lot of difference from the standard S3 brake system then the brembo GT. Also are the standard S3 calipers 4 pot?
