    Confuuuuuuuuuused.com!

    As a few of you know, i fitted some TTRS brakes to the A3 a few months ago

    All is well with them, and i love the setup, but i noticed something odd the other day...

    Passenger side has the drilled holes going the correct way it would seem



    Drivers side has the holes going the other way.....



    Have The TT Shop given me 2 of the same side or something?

    im no expert in the brake area, but that would annoy me as well! Would seem they have given you two of the same, doubt this is common practise

    Looking on google images, i can see a few where the passenger side is the same way as my driver side, with the holes looking like they go the wrong way

    If 1 goes what looks like the wrong way, then so must the other surely? Wouldn't have them going opposite ways would you?

    Seems strange to me too. The holes must be directional for a reason and I would expect them to be the same both sides so the effect of them is equal?!

    Guess to be sure, you'll need to look at a TTRS at a dealer and see what the score is. Perhaps it was cost cutting so they only have to produce one disc instead of 2!

    Spoke to the TT shop earlier, they said that they all come like that as Audi just produce 1 brake disc, not 1 for each side....

    Looks like both sides share same disk. Here are some photos that prove that.




    cheers
