    Brake pedal travel

    Right I got my a3 s line last Saturday and over the week iv noticed the brake pedal goes down further than my previous car and my van. Is this common or are my pads and discs on there way out the car has only covered 30000 miles. If iv gotta do the pads and discs I'd be inserted in fitting s3 calipers if its possible so my next question is are they a straight swap for a3 calipers also iv found some s3 parings fairly cheap so will they fit and are they any different to my s line springs. My cars a 58 plate facelift.

    Check fluid levels, maybe do a flush with new fluid which will also get rid of any air in system with luck.

    You need the correct carriers for the 345mm S3 calipers to fit your hub's.
