    what they worth?

    got a set of front s3 calipers and carriers. ive stripped them back to the metal using elsectrolysis to remove all the rust. im thinking of either painting them (what colour?) or leaving them as they arr so the buyer can paint them the own colour. what do you guys think there worth?

    The carriers will be worth more than the calipers I think, the single piston calipers are the same as those used on the facelift A3's with 1.9TDI 130, 1.8T & 1.8TQ IIRC.

    The only difference is that they have 288mm brake discs whilst the S3 has 312mm.

    At a guess I'd estimate about 50 ish, maybe a bit more?

    Bilstein B8's & Eibach Springs, Neuspeed ARB's (22mm front & 19mm rear).

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