    If it was someone else's car then you would not have any qualms about taking them off...not saying they are stolen but its a good price considering

    not worth £3500.
    they are the same 6 pot calipers from the b7 RS4 or old RS6...£750 on eBay
    discs aren't worth £2750 per pair.......especially 2nd hand

    can get them on the A8 W12 also...cheaper than buying them for an RS model...

    Definately worth £3500, but I'd only go as high as £3k cos I'm tight. The B7 RS4 has 8-pots as standard with the steel discs, not the same set-up as the RS6. Ceramic discs are £2k each new. All in, its £8k to retro fit new kit, or it was a £4235 option on a new RS4.

    we just replaced the front ceramics on a RS4 Cab at work after an accident. The discs were £1995 each never mind the calipers lol
    not bad value at £3500 but I could not even think about spending that on brakes
