    What do you guys do about the dust shield on the 312mm conversion? I will be doing my 1.8t qs soon and wondered if the existing one fits or needs to be swaped / removed. Would there be any issues in leaving them off? Thanks.

    some A4's came from the factory with little more than a small flat plate

    Others have the full large shields.

    bit late on this....
    I just used the old '288mms' back plate with the 315 new discs. No problems at all.
