    Has any one gone from B5 S4 to B6 S4 brakes.Might have a set of B6 ones but want to make sure they are better than the B5 ones i have now,which are really good.

    his reply

    Hi, if your stud pattern is 5x112 and the distance between the mounting wholes of the carriers are 147mm then they should fit. The reason for sale is iv done a big brake up-grade so no longer need these ones. kind regards Steve

    seems ok then :)

    would u need to fit the brakes differently ie the right one on the left and left on the right so the caliper was at the rear of the disc?
