    Hi Everyone,

    Have been on the forum since I had my last A4 but recently got another one after moving over to the darkside (BMW) for a while.
    Anyway I need to change brake disks and pads all round on my new A4 (1.9 TDi sport) and wanted to know whether I could upgrade to the 320mm disks (i beleive from the B7 2.0T) There is a set on ebay at the moment and if its possible I will be looking to win them.
    Would I need anything else other than the calipers, disks and pads? Any issues with clearance with the 17" sport alloys?
    Alternatively are there any other cost effective upgrades? I may still go down the standard route but if im spending I may aswell try and get some more meat for my money!

    Thanks In advance, oh and a quick pic of my new ride :

    Yep, the 320mm b7 setup will fit.
    Also the 321mm B5 S4 setup
    312mm 2.5 tdi setup
    345mm S4 setup (I went for that one)

    Thanks mate - thats perfect got a few options now if the 320's fall through.

    There shouldnt be any issue with clearance on the 17" wheels should there?

    I ran the S4 b5 setup back in 2009, you will find that not many wheel's (18's or 19's) will clear the width of the S4 calipers.
