    Question brembo brakes

    These have been on ebay quite a while now

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT


    Just wondered are they worth it? I have the black diamond and ferrodo DS2500 setup and im happy with them. what your opinions guys and girls? Seams like a straight fit to an S3, im no brake expert to be honest so wouldnt mind learning a little

    Cheers

    Personally if the brakes you have are doing a good enough job for the type of driving you do I wouldn't bother wasting your money. 600 will get you a full springs/shocks kit, coilovers or some new wheels. Just my opinion

    Those will need brackets (and bolts... not normal bolts either, must be right hardness), they look like Brembo Jnr calipers (same as Ibiza Cupra R) so Badger 5 brackets should fit else you will need to get some from Brembo (if you can of course, should be part of the GT kit) or SEAT which won't be cheap IIRC...

    The discs will prob be LCR ones so 323mmx28mm, cheap enough to buy but looking at the colour of the calipers they have had a hard life so may need new piston dust covers...

    You could just build a kit from new stuff, these calipers are the same as the ones I have...

    Can be made to use the LCR discs which can be bought quite cheaply or 2-piece 330mm like mine... for what its worth I was playing with the g-force gauge on my Liquid Gauge and pulled 1.05g on braking....

    I think 650 is top money, plus the calipers need a repaint, look elsewhere.

    So they wouldnt fit the black diamond discs i have already on? i do think there top money at that but was just thinking of putting a low bid in and see what happens!

    600 would get me new alloys or suspension, i have forgot to update my profile, all my suspension is new-B8 dampers, springs, R32 ARBs!

    As Bill said... std S3 discs are 312x25mm... not wide enough for the Brembo caliper

    i dont think im going to bother on these brakes, sounds too much money. HOw would they compare with the black diamond discs and DS2500 pads out of curiousity?

    cheers

    But what would one pay for a set of these on the used market? I've looked around and seen price variations between 500-750 for used Brembo's.
