    Cupra R brakes? Info please!

    Will Cupra R calipers and discs fit on my 1.8 T ? Or will i need to buy some kind of adaptor? i'm only on about the front ones.

    Badger Bill does a kit based on Cupra calipers and 323mm discs. Supplies his own calipers mounts...

    I assume you mean the Brembos...

    You will need the caliper carriers and new hoses. Plus you will need at least 17 inch wheels to clear them.

    Just bought some 312mm standard discs and calipers off a Seat Leon Cupra R and was under the impression they would bolt straight on with my 18" rims?

    OK, looking at the fleabay ad, that is a Leon Cupra, not a Leon CupraR, they did 2 models, one with 180BHP the other with 210/225 depending on year of manufacturer. The 312mm setup is basically standard 8L S3 brakes, I think the caliper is the same as your 1.8T ones, just the carriers are bigger so you can fit the bigger disks on. If you paid 200 for the 312mm setup, I personally think you have been fleeced, especially if they didn't supply you with the carriers to make it work!

    Oh dear...

    If the brakes you have aren't big red Brembo 4 pots...you've been stung.

    312mm - don't think they're from an LCR - they would be 323mm.

    Not all 18" rims will fit over an LCR kit without spacers - see my sig!!

    What I've done is cross-referenced all wheels that fit both an LCR and an A3 - and narrowed my wheel choices from there.

    [edit] sorry, should of read the whole thread before posting - basically repeating info.

    2003 ARY A3 TQS - totally bog except for 18" Dezent Motion Blacks - Hopefully the Brembo Jr will fit these and I can start to update my sig!!
