    B5 S4 Brake upgrade

    Hi Guys,

    I have just purchased some B5 S4 Brakes (From AlexGsi2000 I believe) for my B6. I understand they are a good upgrade. Other than needing discs and pads, what else will I need?

    Thanks,
    Audi A4 B7 SE S line TFSI Quattro.

    Just make sure your wheels don't hit the calipers as the S4 item are very wide. It's not the height of the calipers it's the width .

    I had trouble with mounting my Brabus 19" wheels.

    I have 18" S Line wheels on my car and I need 8mm spacers to allow them to fit. Other than that, they're a direct bolt on. The difference is huge, like night and day.

    Yes they are much bigger than then standard S-line setup If I remember my S4s were 321mm when I was running them, but I have reverted back to standard 312 s-line setup .
