    A3 8P2 Rear Rotor swap - 260 to 286

    I have 260mm rears currently. Have a set of 286mm rotors sitting here(from 2008 model year from memory).
    What is involved in converting my existing setup to 286mm? Just dust shields or do i need different callipers or carriers?

    So it looks like the pads are the same, so one would assume its the same size calliper; even though etka lists a different part number.

    IIRC you just change over the discs and dust shield.

    Ok cool. I would have thought that an extra 26mm approx would need the carriers changed or adjusted somehow though?
