    If you give MaetayMcFly a shout I think that he has an R8 setup with 362mm disks and 4 piston callipers for sale. Don't quote me on that though!

    There are a number of kits for the S3 now.

    My own suggestion is to drop DaveB1970 a line and get his opinion.

    I have the VWRacing kit on mine,and it coped pretty well with hauling the S3 down from over 120mph repeatedly on the straight at Brands recently.

    Well Martin, who's selling them for a start! Haha. Also, maybe PM N8 because I'm pretty sure he's used this exact setup before...

    I didn't fit them myself, don't have the space nor the confidence, but it's no more work than replacing the standard discs and pads (though you have to properly bleed the brakes after).

    I have the carriers and all bolts so they fit straight on, also have spacers for the larger discs (my carriers are machined to fit a 355mm disc)... though the original owner had them on a Passat so not 100% on A3 fitment. Maybe someone somewhere knows for sure?

    Me? Nope, brakes went with the car when I sold it. Buyer should still have the A3 carriers though, since he was going to put the brakes back on the S3. I can ask him if he still has them if you want?
