    Thumbs up S3 Brake Refurb.

    Got these at a steal off ebay, when they arrived I was a little disappointed at the state of them.
    stripped them down and cleaned them up along with a lick of paint. need help with a few things...

    what is the round thing that has corroded? and can anyone give me the part number?
    I also need the rigid pipe on the back and bracket.

    Last of all what are peoples opinions on either new S3 retainers or do I go VW R ones ?

    The round part is a form of sound damper similar to the ones on the RS3 Brembo Caliper, they use them to counteract certain frequencies when people have brake Squeal/noise......

    If I remember rightly on my previous S3 there was one on each front Caliper.
    2012 Misano Red RS3 / Bucket seats Heated front & Rear / Aluminium Styling Pack / Bose / RNS-E / Bluetooth / Mobile phone prep low / AMI / Reversing Sensors / LED number plate lights / Led interior light pack / VCDS / Cruise Control / Exclusive Inlays / Auto Lights & Wipers / 8.5J fronts / extended leather / Michelin Pilot super sport tyres / and a few other things
