    R32 Brakes

    Can some one help
    My mate has just given me 2 front calipers off his Golf R32 MK4. Will these fit my A3 2001?

    Also did you get the carriers too?

    You'll need different carriers and you'll need the r32 discs, think there 342mm but not too sure.

    Thats not a bad upgrade for free. Its 323mm discs IIRC and you will need the carriers too as the new calipers are twin pot iirc

    Not 100% - but I think they'll go straight on - and if your mate's giving you the carriers for free then there's no harm in trying anyway.

    As for the rears, I'll do mine at some point so they match the fronts - but that'll be 95% cosmetic tbh - the rears don't do alot on these cars.
    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!!

    The rear brakes on an R32 are the same as S3 rears.

    ive fitted r32 front brakes on my s3 and they bolt straight on and even fit under the standard 17'' wheels. they are miles better than the 312mm setup and TBH for road use they feel just as good as brembos!!

    Enjoy buying the discs tho at 200 each

    so you dont even need the carriers? can you really notice the difference? you can get r32 calipers pretty cheap now, deffinitely worth it imo if they're any better then the S3's standard set up

    you need calipers, carriers, flexi hoses, discs and pads. the difference is like night and day between r32 setup and s3!
