    So come across some ATE 4 pot calipers with 323mm cupra leon discs (brand new) but what are they worth?
    They dont include carriers so would have to order them on top aswel!

    ATE are standard calipers on the S3 but only 2 pot. Personally due to the cost of custom cariers I'd go for a set of LCR Brembos.

    OMG I didn't realise they were only 1 pot! How can they put 4 pot brembos on the LCR which has the same power as the S3 but only put a 1 pot on the S3? No wonder I couldn't stop when I was on the Ring :whistle2:

    I think being able to stop the car efficiently with standard brakes is quite appealing ;)

    I put a bid of £300 in with 7 seconds left but it didn't go through in time or they'd be mine. They must be worth a good £600!

    Thats unlucky. Yeah but no carriers or hoses so that'd set you back £150-300 depending on what hoses and where you got the carriers from, ooh well.

    It still works out a lot cheaper than a Brembo GT kit! :sob:
