    Wouldn't like to say for sure... if you are paying that money why not look for the right part?

    Not sure I would trust a listing that suggests a 1.6ltr A3 has vented discs on the rear...

    Probs sensible will check Europarts. Just liked the idea of them matching the brembos without the hassle of getting them painted.
