    well, i think you'll need to find right set of discs, and make caliper carriers. then maybe even the brake lines.

    Thats what I seem to be gathering. May end up cosimg more than hunting for ttrs brakes. Hmm I should really ask question of how much do calipers cost to make for to fit and who knows where to go.

    Are these 350mm discs? I have 18" wheels on my S3. Do I need anything else to make these fit. I.e adapters or spacers?? Thanks.
