    Talking Look what I bought from eBay

    Don't you just LOVE eBay!!! Well I do anyway.



    Some 6 Pot AMG Brembo Calipers. Basically I'm going for a turboback exhaust on my car and a custom code phase 2, and as I feel the stock 2.0TDI brakes are poo, wanted a bit more bite, I don't really want 1 pot S3 brakes (plus they look poo), fancied building my own kit.

    I managed to get these calipers for the bargain price of 269 delivered! So they are getting sprayed Akoya Silver (Car colour) next week, then I will gradually build my kit of discs, pads, custom carriers etc over the next few months.

    that price is amazing (specially compared to the daylight robbery that happens in australia!!)

    How much would you expect to pay for a set of matching discs?

    Bargain of the century, not sure about spraying them Akoya though I'd leave em stock.

    It will be like hitting a brick wall when you stamp on those but make sure you upgarde hoses and fluid too for maximum affect.

    They will look amazing, I think I'm developing a brake fetish..LOL !!

    Well they need spraying anyway, as they are a few chips etc on there. I think they are gonna look wicked in Akoya, don't really wanna spray them silver. I know will upgrade hoses and fluid also, my cousin's 6 Pot Cayenne Turbo brakes got me going!!

    Hey Ashley,

    I was getting excited until Corey at quattronics recommend using 365mm B7 RS4 discs, I think I'm going to have to sell my anal virginity to pay for those , . I can't wait till there on either, the ride ain't gonna be as bad as everyone makes out, just depends what your used to. They ain't gonna be dailys anyway we'll see how it goes.

    I will enjoy it.

    I'd worry that the master cylinder will not be able to move enough fluid to actually make them work without the pedal hitting the floor.

    I'd rather be laughing than be crying mate, always in the face of adversity, have a read http://www.healthy.net/scr/column.asp?ColumnId=1&ID=32

    I like to joke about & have a laugh, some people cant help being miserable ****s, hey I get annoyed & peed of like everyone but it mostly only lasts for 5 minutes, some people can be peed of for days, weeks, years, lol, I can hold a grudge but wont let that affect anyone else.

    I was gonna say to Nate that will the braking systems on the car be able to utilise them to there full potential & not cause compatibility issues.

    Ha Ha, you gotta have a laugh. I'm looking forward to it myself. As my sig says really. Turboback exhaust, custom code phase 2 map, bluetooth, interior lights, and thats pretty much it. So by the end of the summer, it'll be finished, and I can start spending cash on the girlfriend again

    Well Corey at Quattronics doesn't seem to think there will be any issues. They are the ones who are going to carry out the conversion.

    Are they willing to give you a document stating that? I have seen the master cylinder on a car with huge callipers and the diameter is much larger than that of a standard car.

    Its alright saying "yeah its alright mate" but another for it to be legally binding.
