    I sold my 312mm brakes for £60 on ebay - somebody got a bargain!

    I upgraded to S4 340mm brakes - if budget allows I would hunt a set down, as the difference is night and day compared to the 312mm.

    I hope to have some b6 ( 2003 ) calipers and carriers coming soon that should be 312mm, is there a way of telling if i need the 25mm disc / or 28mm disc and same with pads as euro car parts lists different widths for them
