    Sourcing Porsche brakes for S3 from Australia!

    Hi everyone,

    My first post here, but long time reader.

    The vehicle is a 2012 Audi S3 8P and I am particularly looking to fit this same kit to the car: Audi A3 Quattro 2.0T > Braking > ECS Stage 5 > ES#7366 Stage 5 Big Brake Kit - Red Porsche Cayenne 6 Piston Calipers - MK5A3S5BBK-RXS

    The kit in the link above would be ideal, however, ECS have advised that it will not fit the Audi S3 8P.

    Where do I get 6 piston Porsche Big Brake kit to fit my S3 like the one in the link above?
    I realise these are simply Brembo's but would strictly want "Porsche" Calipers.

    Thank you!

    The spindles. ECS did not make a kit to suit the S3 8P spindles.

    They have a direct fit for the Audi A3 and even the Golf R, but as was explained to me, the spindles on the S3 8P are so rare in the U.S, there was no need to produce a kit for it.

    They have been very helpful in emails and obviously they would like the sale but they have told me repeatedly that it will 100% not fit an Audi S3.

    I have PM'ed N8.
    Hopefully there is a way to get 18z Porsche Calipers and rotors on an S3..
