    looks wicked - without meaning to sound like an idiot, how difficult was it? :)
    and do you have any trouble with 19" alloys?

    Yes I do have some problems whit the rear it touches when the car is fully loaded and bumpy roads. But it is becuase I have 235/35/19 I should have chosen 225/35/19.

    No it wasent difficult at all I put the brakes into a blästringsskåp (on swedish, dont know the eng word for it. blowing sand on the brake in cabinet if you know what a mean) then just paint whit some hi temp color and put the sticker on place very easy and took me like 4hours to do.

    I got a 345mm setup a while back & yes they do stop alot better now, saved my bacon when I should have been concentrating more, if you're confident enough to fit yourself then you'll be happy with, I actually changed my brake fluid at same time for new aswell.

    The R32, S3 & 3.2 all share the same brake system, the S3 has a slight aesthetical difference, but interms of discs, pads, caliper etc they are all the same as I spoke with ATE in Germany who make them & assured me no difference, so if you see a set of the other cars then should fit fine on the A3, I use 18's without any probs
