    I'm sure all you need is carriers and discs. The caliper is the same and therefore so are the pads.

    Depends on which TDI he has, if it's the bottom of the range, then he will have different calipers.

    Hate to say it, but you just wasted your money.

    All you need is carriers and discs. The carriers were just shy of £48 the pair from Seat last time I knew.

    Jojo, I'm 99.9% certain that ALL diesel A3's have 288mm discs and the same calipers?

    My 110 tdi has 280 mm so i have to buy hubs to upgrade my brakes

    I think only the 130 is easy ;)
