    ah so the Cupra R is the only one with Brembos ? Also where is the best place to find the adapetr brackets to allow the Brembo Calipers to fit the S3 ? Im presuming the Seat ones are no good ?

    Brackets from a Cupra R will bolt straight on.

    They will, but then you'd need to run 323mm discs. At ££££ every time they need replacing and no real choice of discs.
