    S3 Big Brakes

    Looking to upgrade my brakes, I am running standard 18" wheels. What's the biggest size I can go for. Caliper and disc size? So I can search different companies, wilwood , Porsche etc.

    Brilliant mate. I've message a guy on eBay with a set of TTRS discs and calipers. He's sending me a picture tomorrow next to an iPhone just to give me a size comparison. What's the most I should pay for these, mind they are used.

    So will these need adapter or spacers to fit?? I'm just looking for least work possible. Just want a set that bolt straight on.

    I'm running them with 12mm spacers on facelift wheels. There is 4-6mm clearance. Look at my thread for pics. You need to move wheel weights to the center of the wheels. Look on the ebay.de for cheaper setups. That's where i got mine.
