does any one know if the brembo calipers for the leon cupra r will fit on an audi s3.
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!!
i knew the standard leon cupra r had the same size disc on as the s3 but wernt shaw if the brembro kit run bigger disc or not. where did you get your parts from a scrap yard or from seat them selfs. how much do you think it will cost all together? thanks dave
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.
Sounds good mate! get some pics up!!!
Will do, getting them fitted this Sat morn...
could you give me the breakers number up by you please.
wot size spacers do you need?
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
