    Yes, the 4 pot kit will fit behind the standard alloys without spacers etc, the 6 pot kit on the other hand will need small ones to give caliper clearance.

    The discs on the 4 pot are slightly smaller than the oem S3 but you will still get far better performance and a greater pedal fell due to the increased clamping, a very worthwhile mod.

    The current best kits for the car are the AP Racing,VW Racing,Brembo(TT-RS) and if you have deep enough pockets,Alcon.
    The VW Racing kit has a very similar feel to the AP kit I've used previously,and is certainly a good alternative to the AP.

    Quite honestly,anything from AP is going to be miles better than the stock brakes,which are heavy,and prone to fade....I had a 4 pot system on the rally Escort I used to own(370+bhp and 1300kgs),and it was certainly able to cope with hauling that down from speed.
    Don't be taken in too far by the number of pots on the caliper,within reason that is,as we all know of one well known manufacturer who will sell you 10,12 or even 16pot calipers,when AP and Alcon can get by with 6.
