    Hi All,
    Going to upgrade the brakes on the S3.My car is a 2002 225 plus its mapped,miltek system,sports cat,panel filter.Not used for track days,mainly the odd fast road jaunt.
    Just wanted a bit of feedback as to what setups others use and how effective they are..
    Probably asked a thousand times on here but after using the search tool I couldnt find a definitive "best choice accross the board"
    Anyways..
    Looking at 2 possible options; Either going for some EBC ULTIMAX discs and upgrade pads.(redstuff maybe)
    Or Going for the R32 front setup? Either way upgrading the fluid aswell.
    I would be interested to know what you guys thought..

    Are they free then? If so I'll gladly have them.

    Because as we all know, advertising on the discussion boards is strictly against forum rules.

    Mentioning to a fellow member that you have something for sale or available is aloud surly?

    Its not a sale advert per-say.

    I'd make a better mod than the mockery of the term above me.

    It's written in the box under his name. Next to the word "Location".

    Dublin.

    Which is really weird, being called IrishDave and everything.

    **** my life...

    Excuse me B&B, I am a very miserable person.

    This may not have come cross in our brief encounter he other day.

    Thanks for that by he way, my girlfriend now thinks I have some sort of fan club and that I am famous. Was nice o meet you, we should certainly meet up again some time for car related fun.

    Exactly!

    Basingstoke meet up will happen once Nick is back, can't leave him out of any action.

    I think he is back in action early next week, I have had some updates from Spa and I can confirm he is getting on OK. :)

    Just to add. I have put up for sale threads in the classified section previously and had absolutely no reply. I mention it in a post and I get inundated with people inquiring about them. Goes to show how broken the classified section is(I have a few ideas on how this could be fixed).
