    Ive always wondered that same question and ive always thought they would with some uprights to match the carrier spacing but both carriers/calipers can be had for 30-40 quid aside so the calipers wont be as old so if your thinking of just swapping carriers you need uprights aswell, personally id just get TT/S3 ones mine may be up for sale soon with nearly new D&G disc's and mintex pads ill pm you nearer the time if youve not got anything by then !!

    B6 has S4 style caliper bolt spacing, so no, they wont fit a B5 unless you fit the B6 uprights as well.
