    Hi mate! Doubt you remember me but your were the one that helped me out on advise just before i bought my a3 !!

    Have you not got the MTXs yet....my mates got two 7500s and there lowd as f.... :D

    As for the brakes...I've been looking for ages matee....

    One set of S3 ones went on ebay for £250 (front and back) and there was a guy with S3 ones with less than 10k on them (disks pads carriers) and i offered him £300 which he accepted but then sold to £400 to some other dude....

    There very rare....

    I've seen some 3.2 ones which I'm going to try and grab over the weekend (touchwood).

    But eBay or VAG breakers are your best bet :D

    We'll, providing i have the car for under 5 months and been working my AR$£ off to pay the overdraft for the last 3 months, I've not done too bad!

    But let the mods begin!! lol

    Im at Liverpool Uni but am from Manchester (I'm there on most weekends!)

    Where abouts are you from?

    If by brackets you mean the carriers, check if there the same as mine (http://s483.photobucket.com/albums/rr192/kaz_219/) and then the guy with the 3.2 should hopefully split the carriers and calipers. Can't get no better pics as my brakes are at home and I'm at my flat!

    Love the stance of your car...Eagerly trying to find a vortex/autovogue front lip but not having any luck atm! Then slam it to the ground with some deepdish or BBS CK/CH 19" alloys!
