    R32 brake upgrade, which brake lines?

    Hi folks,

    Do anyone know which brake lines to use, when you want to upgrade the brakes on a Audi S3 8L to Golf R32 mk4 brakes?
    The normal S3 or the Golf R32 brake lines?

    R32 brakes aren't technically an upgrade... DS2500 brake pads are a better upgrade tbh.... will work better and be cheaper on discs... R32 replacements are around 300 to 400 a pair IIRC

    I know that doesn't answer your question but fitting bulky, expensive and heavier front brakes isn't an upgrade IMO..

    I have just put R32 brakes on my S3 3 days ago.
    R32 calipers, caliper carriers, discs pads and hoses.
    Zimmermann 2 peice discs and tellow stuff pads. Work wonders.
