    Cheers Ash, I've had my eyes on these, they are plan C. Big Redd wouldn't take the RS4 calipers as part exchange for the B5 S4, I'm still considering getting these. Is the 2.0 tfsi set up any good?

    I suppose they are similar with S4 B5 setup in terms of braking.

    Quick update, I've gone for the A4 B7 2.0T, 320mm disc and caliper set up. They are powder coated red, but will be getting them done in Gold. Will post pictures when I get them:thumbsup:

    Finally got the calipers back today.

    They have been painted with two pack Polyurethane paint, I'm told it's tougher than powder coat!.The rear of the caliper has been painted in high temp silver paint for some contrast.

    Got S/S HEL brake lines and s/s bleed nipples too. Discs have been painted in high temp silver to prevent rust.

    Just need to get the whole lot on the car and bled:think:

    Here are some pics, let me know what you think?

    Well I finally got around to fitting the brakes, l/h side went OK with no problems, the r/h side was a nightmare, couldn't undo the brake pipe, totally seized, had to drive around for a few days with one old, and one new caliper/disc until I could get to a garage.

    They had to replace the whole pipe up to the ABS block, which cost me more that the calipers, discs and pads combined:huh:

    Anyway all fitted now, and they are absolutely unbelievably good :applaus: her are some piccys of them fitted!
