    Look for any Audi TT MK1's being broken on Ebay, then send the seller a message and ask if he has them for sale. I got the carriers and calipers for £50 delivered!

    do you need the calipers, i thought they were the same

    just need larger discs and the carriers to space out your own calipers ?

    calipers not needed on a 1.8t and above, but 1.6's 1.8's and some Tdis have a different front setup,but thats a complete setup and just as well stay a complete setup. Coming with discs means it can go straight on too

    As Byzan said, calipers not required (if you have a 1.8T), the seller I got mine off didn't want to split the calipers and carriers as he had removed them as a whole unit so I now have a set of spare calipers sitting in my garage. Looking on ETKA, they all carry the same part number (1.8T / S3 / TT) and use the same pads too.
