    Moving front brakes to back.

    Does anyone know if the bolt pattern for the rear caliper and carrier is the same front and back? I assume they're not, as the rear calipers look tiny.

    I was just wondering if I upgrade the front brakes, if I can then move the standard 288mm ones to the back, for added benefit. Probaby looking to move to B5 or B6 S4 front brakes in the near future.

    Different setup all together. Also you would have no handbrake using from claipers on the rear

    Haha, cheers Mark. I knoew there would be a decent reason this hadn't already been done. It'll just be a front brake upgrade then me thinks.
