    after I'd serviced the A4, A3 and been to a fire call. I quickly fitted the brakes and bled them.

    So job for tomorrow is painting.

    Just fitted the calipers, carriers, discs and pads.
    So I have a set of hubs, arms and S4 drive shafts sat in the garage.

    Looking good! Would lend themselves to some discrete caliper stickers now.

    Performance is certainly better than the 312's that were on there. But I think the pads that were on the 312's were abit **** tbh. They do feel firmer on the brake though, but i've done a fluid change which hasn't been done in at least 2 years. So it could be a number of things adding up to it.


    As for sticker, I have thought about a Quattro sticker round the radius closest to the centre of the disc. On the caliper...

    Mines not a Sline, so i'm trying to avoid anything like that really. I'll keep an eye out for some Quattro ones when i have some funds.

    Personally I feel as you've got S4 brakes you could get away with an S4 caliper sticker.

    Seen them done with a nice set of 4-rings.... I got some four rings transfers in various sizes off eBay for about £2 a few years back when I was thinking of painting mine.
