    Yes they do!

    I'm doing this mod as we speak, you will also need the caliper carriers from the calipers and 323mm x 28mm discs.

    Also if you have the 18in rs tt wheels then you will need wheel spacers or your alloys will rub against the caliper which I found out!!

    The standard S3 has smaller discs than the cupra r!

    Standard S3 - 315mm x 25mm

    Cupra R - 323mm x 28mm

    I priced all the parts up at a local Seat dealer first as I was going to go this route but even with discount the price was well over the price of a new Brembo GT kit (£900+)

    I managed to find a full Cupra R kit from a local VAG breaker specialist inc discs (only 200miles on them), pads, calipers and caliper carriers.

    The calipers were quite scratched from the accident/laying around in the workshop but are in full working order and virtually brand new.....bargain for £400 cheaper than a main dealer!

    Just touched the scratches up with a paint stick colour matched from Halfords.

    I put 5mm on the front and this leaves them very close to the calipers but they look good!

    Will be getting some 10mm ones for the rear soon to match them up
