    Upgrading to 312mm brake help

    Hi all,

    I need to replace the brakes on my B6 130pd soon so thought I may aswel upgrade them to 312mm at the same time.

    Problem is I can't find a set of carriers for 312s anywhere Anybody got and for sale or know what motors they were fitted to ?

    Thanks in advance

    I always thought it was all quattro models that had them, but recently someone said the 1.9q didn't. The 2.5TDi q does anyway.

    I had a couple of replies on ebay yesterday for s4 b5 front carriers calipers and pads for £70 & £75 p/s & d/s plus £15 p&p, obviously i'd replace the pads anyway, But i'm still searching whether to go 312mm, 320mm or 345mm it's doing my nut right in as i need brakes anyway.

    I've upgraded my 2.5 312's to S4 345's. They fit good.
    Then upgraded the A6's 286's to the 312's. They just need the carriers. Calipers fitted fine.

    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.
