    Hi all,

    I have been given the option to buy 2nd hand Alcons for my S3.
    However, the brake kit is 1year +. The owner has just recently changed to new brake pads and new rotors.

    We all know that the greater wear and tear occurs on the rotors and pads. What would the common problems on older brake calipers be?
    What should I look out for with regards to caliper wear and tear?

    Appreciate any input.
    Thanks
