    Wow those anchors should stop you no problem.

    Tbh I wouldn't have thought they would fit

    What wheels are you using?

    18"s. fit should be OK as the hat height is pretty high (depth from hub face to disc centre)

    have to get the wheels this week next week, have a spare strut to test fit and fine tune the adapters and then they are going on. 2 weeks hopefully.
    looking at some rs4 rears to match up with them (312mm)

    may sound overkill on a 1.8t, but I have a 2.1l 20v running a GT2871 going in over Christmas, expecting somewhere north of 350...at the wheels!

    RS4 disc on spare strut



    RS4 Disc and 4 pot brembos lined up inside 18x8 RS6's (from behind)



    From the front
    Still can't believ how much lighter the discs are than the standard Phaeton disc, less hat height which concerned me but it all fits!!, off to the engineers now for four adapters

    not worth it, you can get RS4 rears (312mm) for next to nothing, always coming up on eBay as the B5 owners go to B7 RS4 rears.
    I just got rear calipers, discs, pads, Front Discs and cailipers all for 300.
    Calipers will sell for 100+ by themselves.

    discs bolt straight on, same stud pattern, the tricky bit is matching the lug pattern on your strut to the lug/radial pattern on whatever calipers you use.
    I have lug mounted brembos so I need a plate with four holes to extend the caliper mounting point towards the tyre (distance from hole to hole) and also to line it up with the disc (plate thickness)

    Adapter made on the cheap would be good as I am looking at fitting my RS4 setup this week end if I get the last few parts in on time but later I would like to upgrade the calipers.

    well my plan is to get a few patterns made:
    A4 and S4 (two different adapters) I have a spare S4 strut
    Fronts:
    1) lug mounted Brembo four pot with RS4 discs (360x32)
    2) same caliper with Phaeton discs (360x34)

    A4 only
    Rears:
    RS4 discs with RS4 calipers (312mmx 20 something)

    Then I have some adapters to sell on and make up some of the cost of my conversion.

    Doing the same the same with the tubular 1.8t turbo manifold for the B5 chassis......just been busy recently

    I'm up for this, i was thinking of doing the rear conversion as well, i've got an S4 hub coming but if we can do the conversion on standard A4 hubs then thats even better

    Jesus! I would hope so.
    Set of new SR4 discs went for 375 last week on eBay
    My calipers were only 250 or so

    I would want the whole lot including S/S pipes for that dollar.
    Anyway, off to the engineer tomorrow
    Will let you know how quick they can turn them around.
    Found myself a goodridge dealer in Edinburgh who will make custom pipes for a decent price as well

    I have the full set including hubs dive shaft even anti roll bars and rear subframe diff and prop just missing a gear box. The fronts are the first point as I have a Barring issue so they have to be done first.


    JCB keep me posted and let us know what sort of money we are looking at.

    will do.

    Am I correct in thinking that S4 and A4 have different front struts?

    Every thing just bolts up the same the drive shafts have a different drive shaft bolt patten for the gear box so that needs to be swaped out then replace the springs as they will jack the car up but the shocks will be like upgrading when fitted with uprated springs.

    The S4/RS4 use a larger bolt to mount them to the strut.

    Lined my 4 pots and RS4 calipers up with the strut I have (pretty sure it is an S4 strut).
    this is what lies ahead



    Flat, 4 bolt flange required for brembos

    RS4's line up perfectly, carrier must be bigger but bolt holes are the same.
    Getting an A4 strut on Friday

    should know what prices are by the end of week
