    I am intersted in undertaking the 312mm brake upgrade using TT carriers - I called a couple of breakers and was quoted 150 quid for 2nd hand. I made a few calls and tried to strike a deal with company the will deliver brand SHINEY new carriers for around 140 - the more people interested the cheaper. This means that YOU don't have to spend ages cleaning the **** off them and degreasing them before painting. If anyone is interested please let me know.

    I'm very interested in upgrading my brakes to 312mm, what discs are needed? and which calipers?
    A friend fitted the S4 brakes to his A4Q2,8 but they were expensive for discs and pads?
    I have the chance of getting some S3 callipers and carriers, the same as TT as far as i'm aware,but are they of any use?
    should i just go for a brembo kit? or get the S4 units?

    If the S3 brakes are no good to me they will be listed on ebay on friday, if anyone is interested?
