    I need to change the front brake disc and pads and take advantage of discount from Euro carparts but I have an option of 2 discs sizes to choose from; 288 or 312, could I fit the 312 without mods?

    Also what suitable pads should i choose?

    Finally out of Pagid and Eicher which is better?

    Many thanks

    hi mate is yours a 140 bhp or 170bhp? that will determine yoor disc size 312mm been 170, you can only upgrade by changing the caliper carriers its the only way you could get them to fit.

    and go with pagit as this is what genuine audi discs are made by

    Thanks mate, I've got the 140bhp so will go for 288 and Pagit as recommended.

    Any ideas on brake pads? There's a couple to choose from.
