    Waste of cash. You'd be better just buying some good pads and a set of Goodridge brake lines. On a car like this there's no real benefit going for "performance" discs.

    The S3 setup works really well for a factory setup and would be a massive improvement over the 312mm discs you've got already, and if you buy the calipers for the right money is an inexpensive upgrade.

    Couldnt agree more with what you just said.

    Did you use the MK5 lines from Goodridge as 8P isnt listed & they replied saying none for that model, but obviously MK5 3.2 is same as 3.2 8P so must fit.

    If so, do you have the part numbers to hand please.

    Yes they were the Mk5 4WD lines which were a perfect fit. Part no was SVW0615-4C for the kit with stainless fittings I went for.

    The 312mm discs are the ones I wanted to get from that site as I need new discs (still using the same ones I got when new).

    I'm thinking; combine the discs with the pads and brakelines you said = worth it?

    Gents (Nige + Nath) your expertise on brakes is required again!
    I have a 2006 a3 2.0tdi 3dr and need the entire brake setup replacing as im at 101,000 and have only replaced the pads since buying 3 years ago at 16,000 miles.
    You have mentioned above that the R32 / S3 / 3.2 brake setups are 'almost' identical.
    So for me to get that setup and get a garage to fit them labour only I would need to provide them with the following:
    - Brake discs
    - Pads
    - Calipers
    - Carriers
    - Brake Lines

    Where would you recommend I start looking and would I just ask if they have the parts for the R32 / S3 / 3.2 braking system?
    Do I need the setup from the same year as my car (2006)?
    Any other things I should take into consideration?

    Thanks again chaps!

    It depend on the rims you want to use. On some 17"s they might not work. I have a friend who recently made the conversion to S3 front brakes and they fit. I'm also going to do this upgrade.
    The distance between the caliper and the rim is VERY small. If the rim has spokes that are inclined, they may hit the caliper.
    These rims will fit:

    DSG | Vienna Leather | Bose Sound | MFSW | Interior Lights Pack | Light & Rain Sensors | Auto Dimming Mirror Mods: LED RNS-e | FL LED Tail Lights | Bi-Xenons | Illuminated Speaker Grilles | Tinted windows | Chrome Switches | Chrome Paddles&Commands | RS4 Start Button | Cruise Control | S3 Pedals | S3 Roof Spoiler | 18" BBS CH | H&R Spacers 10/15 mm | Bilstein B16 PSS10 | H&R 26/24 ARBs | TT Arms | S3 Front Brakes+DS2500+Tarox F2000 | HEL Brake Lines | VNT20 | EGR&Cooler Delete | Custom Remap
