    Does anyone know where would be the best place to purchase them? I've had a look on europarts but can't seem to find them.

    Nope not even close. You need R32 discs with R32 calipers. The diameter and offset of the disc are way different.

    They bolt on but I can't confirm about the hoses. Probably worth getting some braided R32 hoses anyway. You'll be fine then.

    I have just fitted 996 fronts to my S3 and have a few questions.
    The mc has been changed and the system bled numerous times,primed abs etc but still the pedal feels a little spongy.
    Is there something that I still need to do? Might it be something to do with the new mc?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi Just got back from the garage with a quote for 1085 euros for new rear calipers and pads plus hoses. The calipers where 251 each.

    I have the chance to buy some 996 rear with discs pads and hose for 300 euros.

    Will these fit on my 2002 S3?

    New to this forum and my audi so need some advice!

    Hi,

    I have an Audi S3 8L (225) with 256mm rear brakes and I'm looking for a new bigger brake disc than can be fitted on my car but it's impossible to find it...

    To begin I would like a disc between 280mm and 310mm and keep my caliper with track pads, just with custom carriers.

    And probably after I will change my calipers too.

    Can you help me ?

    Thanks and sorry for my english (I'm french).

    ECS stage1 308mm rears. Tarox do a similar kit based in the UK I think? And there's a member doing a 300mm rear conversion using S4 discs, forgot his username.

    Thanks for your answer. In the ECS tuning website, there are no more parts for Audi 8L

    And on Tarox website it's always written "all 8L except S3" But the brake discs are too small.

    Definitely it's not easy to find. I could buy brake discs from last Audi S3 or TT-RS and drill holes to fit on my car, but I don't know if it's viable in the time, especially in a track configuration.
