    WOULD I BE ABLE TO CHANGE TO S4/RS4 HUB CARRIERS TO USE RS4 DISCS? BECAUSE MY 2.8 BRAKES ARE NOT UP TO THE JOB OF PULLING UP SUCH A HEAVY CAR , HAVE TRIED CROSS DRILLED DISCSA ND UPRATED PADS BUT FIND THE 280MM DISCS ARE JUST TO SMALL.

    THANKS

    Ok here what you can do Satans Child is selling S4 Hubs with new barrings you will just need to swap out the drive shafts as the S4's will not mate up with the Gear box flanges. then rou will be able to mate S4 or RS4 brakes and disc on that.

    Or do the TT carrier conversion with a set of A8 discs.

    I thought the S4/ A4 had same PCD so the disks would fit the same ?

    Or may be think along the S8 brembo route as a carrier looks to be quite easy for that.

    Not sure i have the movit brakes coming and i really like their quality think there better than Brembo.
    I will see what i can do i may just sell the disks and get different ones with TT carriers.

    Movit are good so stay with them, me on the other hand work to a budget and the budget needs to include servicing and that means pads.

    The B7 RS4 & RS6 Brembo pads cost £300 for a set which is a killer but for my B5 RS4 calipers I picked up a set of pads new for the front and rear for only £70 so this is a strong factor when upgrading although S8 Brembo's seem good with a £100 for a set of front pads.

    No. S4 clocks don't plug into pre-facelift cars, plugs and wiring harness are different.
