    Hello all, Ive got a 2003 avant tdi, just woundered if its as simple as getting the TT carriers and disks, unbolt add carriers and re-bolt to upgrade to 312mm. I had them on my VRS and was a good mod,

    Quite a few A4 models have them anyway, so you won't need to restrict yourself to TT brakes.

    I think it's the quattro models that have 312, but it may also be the FWD V6 models, but I'm not sure on that.

    TT carriers wont fit B6 uprights, the spacing is different.

    I know the 3.0 V6 came with 312's cos I've just bought some to fit to my TDI... I'm just hoping they will fit a B7. I've got the discs, callipers and pads.

    Ah good.

    Well it looks as though the callipers are the same anyway so I'm hoping all I need to do is fit the larger carriers, new disks and pads then off I go!

    P.S, Love your wheels...wanna swap????
