    That is what you need, search 312 brakes on ebay for the carriers if you want them brand new, or try and find a used set of Audi S3, 225TT and some higher powered B5 Passat/Audi A4's should do the trick, then 312 brake disks for S3/TT225/Leon Cupra(not R), and any pads that fit the caliper(must be 'Lucas' calipers I think?).

    Its just discs and carriers isnt it?, calipers are the same so the A3 pads will be just fine
