    Question regarding the 312 caliper holders

    Hey guys i'm just bought a 312mm setup from an ebay seller and i don't know if this setup also includes the caliper holders. The setup can be found here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...#ht_500wt_1182 . Can you please take a look and tell me what you think?

    Many thanks!

    I've just upgraded mine to s3 all round, I wanted to keep it looking OEM so brought the disc shields/guards from Audi as your standard ones will be to small. Some people just bend the standard ones back so they don't rub on the new disc but I suggest buying new ones. Not alot of money but worth it. All the bolts will be the same but you will want new caliper to carrier bolts (unless buying new pads, then they come with them).

    Just installed front plus rear with brand new discs and pads manufactured by trw. I didnt have time to test them very well since here its raining but a first glance the braking is phenomenal .
