Could someone "in the know" please check this part number for me? S4 brake upgrade.
I'm just about to splash out on the caliper carriers for doing the 345mm B6 S4 front brake conversion on my car. I've already managed to get a set of B5 S4 uprights 2nd hand and I've tried for months to get some 2nd hand B6 S4 calipers and carriers without success.
I can get the discs pads and calipers new from All German Parts but I'm told the carriers are Audi only. Apparently they are about £150 each side from the dealer! But the hell with it. I'm fed up of waiting and fed up of poo brakes.
I've done a bit of homework and it seems that the part number I need is 1K0 615 125C which is apparently with a black finish (if the suffix is B they are apparently silver). I prefer black as I want it as OEM looking as possible.
Now the question is a) is this the correct part number and b) is it the same part number for both sides (ie do I order 2x 1K0 615 125C) or not?
Also, when you google this part number it comes up with a load of stuff on Mk5 Golfs. Is this also a VW part and if so, would it be cheaper from a VW agent perhaps (much more Mk5s about than S4s)?
Any help would be appreciated before I spend £300 of my hard earned to find out that they don't fit!
