    Hi,

    I've got a 53reg 2.0 TDi Sport (140ps) with standard sport wheels (and 288mm front brakes). Remapped to ~170hp or so. I've got to replace the front discs and pads, and reading around here it seems pretty much a no-brainer to try for the 312 mm upgrade.

    I've had a read around, but admittedly know rather little :p I think I found the parts that I need:

    312mm discs (Figure just get the uniparts stuff for discs as doesn't seem to be much difference between brands) -
    Part Number
    UGCGBD1579
    Description
    Brake Disc
    Fitment 2
    312mm disc
    Height (mm)
    49.9
    Thickness (mm)
    25
    Disc Dia (mm)
    312
    Spigot Dia (mm)
    65
    Stud Holes
    5

    for the pads, I was thinking Ferrodo DS2500, and I think the pads are these ones:
    [FONT=&quot]AUDI[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]A3 II (8P1)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]2.0 TDI[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]136,14[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]05/03[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]> [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]FDS1641[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG][/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]FDS1636[/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG][/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]​
    [FONT=&quot]156,5x61x19,4 mm[/FONT]

    I can't find out where to get new carriers from though....

    Could anyone comment as to whether I got the right parts above (I'm not sure about the pads...) and also does anyone know the part number and where I could get the carriers from (other than ebay - time is tight :( )

    Thanks
    -Julian
