    I know you have Brembo's mate but my rears are half cut n looking rusty in the bell which is doing my nut in when cleaning inside the wheels weekly.....

    so thinking of sticking the bigger discs that you fitted.... i have searched everywhere but cant find anything on your thread, just threads on going from solid to vented (A3 to S3) rather than S3 upgrade

    any help?

    Yup, I have ECS stage 1 rears, and I got them for £350 allin brand new! lol, they are probably around £350+vat now?

    You don't really need these 308mm on the rears unless you are running Big Turbo power in my opinion.

    Paint the rusty bits, and any decent oem style disc is more than enough.

    Tho it saddens me that Joe has larger discs on the rear than i have on the front of mine,lol

    That's what the ECS stage 1 rears basically is, 2-piece floating disk and extended carrier calipers, and some decent pads of course, but you can use standard pads.

    Prawn mentioned in his Big Brake thread about 284mm(I think it was) custom rear brakes I think.

    Evening chaps, I heard my name mentioned, so thought I'd come say hello :)

    DaveB, who supplied my porsche brake kit, also does big rear brake upgrades.

    I believe he does a 284mm kit, using 4wd rear calipers on a 2wd chassis with extended carriers to take the caliper out.

    For the 4wd cars, I think he offers a 300mm kit using RS4 rear discs.

    His kits are incredibly reasonably priced, log onto UKMKIVS or SCN and give him a PM!
