    Brembo big brake conversions are big money. Have you heard of the 312mm big brake upgrade using audi parts?

    4 pot 996 turbos are only £250, discs from movit and some braided lines and you are sorted

    There are a million and one options out there.

    Best of the bunch is either RS6 8-pot calipers w/ B7 RS4 disks. Or Porche Cayenne 8-pots with RS4 B7 Disks.

    Alternatives are RS4 B5 brakes... not very good. Porche style 4-pots fit under standard alloys, which is a good thing. 330 odd mm disks, so good enough, but no where near as good as the 8-pot 365mm disk options.

    MRC have a couple used sets for sale I think. Give them a buzz.

    Also take in to account the cost of replacement pads as this can be a killer.
