    I assume you're doing it for stopping power, if so then the S3 setup would be more than sufficient to enhance stopping, we run S3 systems on 2.0 tdi's & I think they're very good indeed.

    Its just that I found one for £370 including the discs and pads plus wear indicators in mint condition. most s3 setups on ebay have vital bits missing.
