    It is available, but the kit retails at just under £3k, here they are fitted on a Mk2 TT

    Thanks N8 for the information. I can spend up to 500 to upgrade my brakes so what is your recommendation?don't want to spend too much money just for the brakes :))

    S3 brakes are your best bet for your budget.

    If you just want to make the brakes you've got on at the minute look a bit better then Hammerite is your friend.

    Your brakes are just fine. Take the calipers off, clean the calipers and then paint the calipers. Covering them with those fake covers is just wayward/douche

    Thanks tcardio kelvin_s for your userful advises,maybe I will just paint them instead.

    @Ash is your caliper standard or after market parts?I saw it last time but didn't really take a close up look so if you are interesting on swap then I dont mind :))Will throw in some cash for you as well :))

    You don't even need to take the calipers off.
    Just remove your wheels, clean/scrub all the calipers and give them a nice couple of coats of hammerite. Job done!
