    Does anyone know if brembo calipers from other models fit the s3. For example fiat 20v turbo or Subaru?

    Im sure the calipers off the mk1 focus rs are the same as they share the same parts, i think the fiat 20v may fit also but not 100% sure.

    Just fit the LCR ones.

    Read the FAQ sticky and it has all the information you will ever need.

    Ye I'm on the look out for the lcr ones but they don't come up often or are expensive. Was offered fiat ones for £60 for the pair.

    The Fiat ones will be shocking. What brake setup do you have at the moment?

    There is a set on Edition38 at the moment with brand new pads for £450 posted. Under the suspension and braking section.

    Any calipers can be made to fit with the right carriers but you would be better off sticking with tried and tested ones.

    The Fiat and Focus ones are log mounted. so adapters are more arkward to make.
    As said stick to LCR items
