    not worth it, for the same money you could do a Porsche 993 or 996 caliper conversion or an RS4 conversion.

    Lots of both on Ebay, get discs from various places cheap.
    Porsche 996 brembo reds go for less than £250 on ebay.
    get discs from Movit or just buy the RS4 or A8 discs. mix and match your pads depending on the disc caliper combo

    The Ebay things are brand new 8 pot numbers. sound pretty good when you consider Porsche Brembos 4 pots go for £250-350 for 3nd hand ones, and then you need adapters to fit the radial bolts

    What is the difference between the S4 and A4 caliper carrier then?
