    S3 brakes are the obvious choice, you will need the discs (312mm) and carriers at the very least but suspect you may also need the calipers and pads too as they may be different on a 1.6 to a 1.8...

    iirc the hubs are different on the 1.6's so i'm not sure that the s3 brakes are a straight swap, i know they are for the 1.8t's.
