    As title really..

    Both rear callipers seem to stick, handbrake seems to go all the way up to the roof.. Hit the calliper with a lump hammer and it's goes back to normal..

    Anyone know a place to pick then up pretty cheapish? I've read horror stories of Audi charging £300 per calliper :(

    Thanks!

    Cheers guys! At that price it isn't worth getting them 2nd hand. It's probably worth doing the brake lines as well whilst I'm changing them.. Thanks again!

    Oemautospares provided my 312mm calipers and carriers and I asked about 256mm rear calipers.

    I was quoted 160 posted for 2 reconditioned and painted in red or black 256mm calipers and carriers.
    I think its like 110 and a partial refund on receipt of the calipers as you wont need carriers.

    They won't fit Ray, they are for the non vented discs, the S3 calipers are wider.
