    Would these rear brake disc, fit a Audi S3 8L?

    Hi guys,

    Been looking for a rear brake upgrade kit to my Audi S3.
    I have looked at ecs tuning and saw this, which i think is a quite cheap upgrade :-)
    But i am not sure if it also fits a Audi S3 8L?

    Are your front brakes uprated or standard??

    If they are standard i would save the money and upgrade them to a larger size, you will notice the difference more

    I have just bought some VW Golf MK4 R32 front brakes, as that is the only brake upgrade i can while i am driving with BBS Le Mans rims, and there isn't any/much room in these rims :-(
    The rear brake upgrade is more about the looks, than performance, and therefore it should be as cheap as possible :-) the standard rear brakes is a bit to small if you ask me.

    No they won't fit, you need the ECS stage 1 rears for your car, as you have bigger calipers for vented disks as opposed to solid disks from a mk4 Golf/Beetle.

    The rears are the same in diameter, but on S3's and TT's they are vented, and have a wider caliper to accomodate.
