    Hi,

    Will RS4 front brakes (calipers, carriers, disks, pads) fit on a 1998 S4 with standard 17" wheels?

    If so what is a fair price 2nd hand for buying the above brakes?

    Thanks

    Rich

    I've thought about putting these on mine before, but was put off when I found out that replacement discs were £200 each!

    To be fair I just had a quick check on ECP to get a rough idea. Suppose you could get them even cheaper when they have offers on.

    just buy them second hand
    hundreds of them with 0.5mm worn off them for next to nothing

    I just bought a pair of rears, discs, calipers and carriers for £150

    I bought the whole original set for £300 (run B7 fronts now)
