What size are they 312mm?
Just ordering some and unsure.
Hi I would say they are 345mm, but to be exact could you pm your chassis to me.
I AM PRETTY CERTAIN THAT THE A3 3.2 V6 USES 312 MM, AS THE STANDARD BRAKE 288MM UPGRADE IS TO GET THE CALIPER CARRIERS OFF THE 3.2 WITH 312MM DISCS
I THINK ITS THE S3 THAT USES THE 345MM
sorry bout the capitals, only just looked at typing and realised i accidently hit the caps!!!!
I think frenchy is right at 345mm.
The Golf 4-motion uses 312mm so would have thought they would have been bigger.
Also the Mk5 R32 uses bigger than the 4-mo...
the r32 brakes are bigger, i emailed a bloke from awsome gti and asked about the r32 brakes and he said as they are 345 they will not fit under 17 inch, but the 3.2 v6 rides on 17 inch alloys! im pretty certain that it is 312mm have a lok on that site, it shows all the discs being 280 288 n the s3 is 345 n there is one 312mm disc
i have just been looking at ebay and people are selling 312mm discs for the 3.2 v6 a3
look at the post about four down
We had a 3.2 a3q on a 7 chassis today with a pr option code of 1LK and they are definatly 345mm.
hmmm, well it seems some places do 345mm n other do 312mm do you still have you old discs? if so, measure em?
this shows the same 2003- a3 3.2 and you can either buy 312mm discs or 345mm so i dont know which one has what?! whether the quattro has the bigger discs i dont know!!!
Anybody saying 312mm is talking ****. It uses 345mm.
well these are companies that are selling them, and you can buy 312mm discs upgrades which come off of a 3.2 v6
Have just checked A3 3.2 from 04-09 they run 345mm discs. 312mm are from 2.0T.
hmm, wonder why that website is selling them a3 3.2 v6 discs as well!!!! do the 3.2 use a different caliper too then?!
Yes they do, bloody huge thing by the pic on ETKA
Just rang my local dealers and they want £95 per disc foro the 345mm.
£76.16+VAT per disc from here: http://www.onlineautomotive.co.uk/s...e_mo_id=33&se_es_id=36&se_bt_id=0&se_yr_id=55
£95 per disc seems fair, VW wanted £200+VAT per disc on my Passat.
What discs do the W8 have on them? Big mothers i bet!
p.s pete see the exhaust thread!
The S3, Mk5 R32, LCR and 3.2 A3 all use the 345mm discs.
I have them on my a3
No just 335mm on the Passat - I guess that was big in 2002 when they came up with the stupid car.
Unfortunately they're unique to this model - different to any other VAG fitment, so no pattern discs available, so VW have the market to W8 discs to themselves!
Checking out the exhaust thread now.
