    Hello, I'm managed to some how get my self a good deal on a ret of RS3 or TTRS brakes I was just wanting to ask a few questions if someone shouldn't mind helping me by answering them.

    What brakes are they? I got these codes off of the back of them:

    I think they are the TTRS ones because the code starts with 8j but I didn't know if it was that simple? Haha.

    the other question is will they fit a 07 2.0tdi a3 s-line 170bhp and what discs would I need TTRS ones or RS3 ones?

    Thanks

    Cant help with the calliper's however TTRS & RS3 callipers are the same as far as i know. The discs you need are the TTRS ones, however I've only read this for an S3, as its something to do with the offset on the hubs, RS3 ones won't fit but TTRS will. Im Sure someone else will come & give a better answer though!

    On the mk5 golf forum they fit these to the golfs using ttrs discs so the A3/S3 will be the same.

    I though that I just wanted to know if any one could tell by the codes haha. I've read that to I just can't seem to find any TTRS discs at the minute :( thanks for the help dude.

    I know it's a good deal what i got, but im just clueless to what they came off of a rs3 or a tt? And to what I would need disc wise to get them on my a3. Otherwise they will end up in the pile of parts I've got waiting to go on my car haha.

    I've got 10mm up front but I don't think they will cut the mustard haha.

    But I can't really stick bigger ones on:

    It's a shame to sell them really but I can't run this daily where I live.
