    Brakes

    Can anyone comment?
    I've heard that RS4 calipers are the same from the B5 and B7 RS4, for the B6 S4 ???

    Was wondering, as I'd like to improve my braking...

    Know how how much a new set of front calipers might cost? WIll check with Audi...

    Otherwise, I may get some EBC Redstuff pads and braided hoses, as this should make some improvement...?

    Anyone have any experience with brake upgrades/improvements? It's for the occasional track day, and general improvement day to day.

    Thanks

    RS4 calipers on the B5 were crap 2 pots, on the B7 they are 8 pots, so they're not the same, but they do fit. I had the B7 setup on my B5.

    Dont go with redstuff pads, didnt rate them on my rs4

    edit: just re-read, yes the B7 setup will fit on the B6 so long as you have 18" alloys and above

    So the only thing to source would be the discs and pads ?
