    Hi all

    I have read the The Definitive Brake Thread for 8L A3/S3 Owners(and other Golf4 Platform cars). but i have a question regarding the part numbers! I have been offered a set of Porsche calipers supposedly off a 2002 boxster but the part numbers i have been given are:

    99635142511
    99635142611
    99635242113
    99635242213

    which i presume are off a 996? The above thread mentioned using rear 996 calipers for the fronts but i guess i can use the 996 fronts instead and put the rears, well on the rear? I have seen adaptor brackets for the fronts floating around eBay but none for the rear, anybody know where i can get the rear adaptors?

    My car is an 8L Audi S3.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Rob

    Big job putting the rears on..... Something to do with the handbrake being in the caliper I think.... Could be wrong.... I'm sure someone more knowledgable will be along to tell you....

    Thanks for the reply cecil, i think it will be ok regarding the rear calipers/handbrake but i cant seem to find much info on the net regarding the rear conversion or said adaptors?!

    As an alternative has anyone managed to fit at set of front TTRS calipers?
