    S3 brakes are fine. you might need to look at whether they will fit behind your wheels

    I have S3 fronts on mine, and i have to say im pretty impressed. I had Porsche Boxter brembos on my Ibiza Cupra, and i think that the S3 ones are on a par if not better!

    Hello guys,

    In order to upgrade from the 312mm brakes to the S3/R32/Cupra you need the following components:

    - brake caliper left blue > 1K0 615 123 G
    - brake caliper right blue > 1K0 615 124 G
    - caliper carrier blue > 1K0 615 125 F
    - retaining spring > 4F0 615 269
    - brake disc ventilated 345x30 5/112 > 1K0 615 301 M
    - splash shield for brake disc left > 1K0 615 311 C
    - splash shield for brake disc right > 1K0 615 312 C
    - brake pads with wear indicator > 1K0 698 151 B
    - hexagonal head bolt M8x12 > N 907 186 02
    - brake hose > 1K0 611 701 N
    - brake pipe hose from brake hose to piston housing left > 1K0 611 763 A
    - brake pipe hose from brake hose to piston housing right > 1K0 611 764 A
    - retaining clip > 191 611 715
    - bracket for brake hose left > 1K0 611 841 A

    Also these brakes will fit on any A3 that has wheels larger than 16", 17 inch minimum.

    I think the S3/3.2 brakes are fine..... Never had the fade and they have lasted 60k miles so far (mainly town/b-roads as well!)

    So from that list I take it the callipers from an S3 will not just be a straight swap over? I debated doing this after the remap just for peace of mind (and they look better tbh) when you say Cupra R brakes do you mean off the latest shape of the brembos off the last one?
    Sorry to Hijack thread lol

    Thanks
