    For one, I think they'll look amazing and you got a great deal, considering I paid £250 for S4 Callipers and Discs.
    Which were more than enough for my A4.

    Huge brakes always look amazing, maybe you could get some carbon ceramic discs cheaply, that would be wicked.

    Although I'd be concerned that I'd end up with 4 rings on my forehead every time I braked.....lol

    Nathan, I am abit concerned about the custom carriers as there is ALOT of forces on those babies. If the are not machined EXACTLY to a T youve got a potential disaster there.... just my 2 cents...

    I dont think there should be a concern about the master cylinders as I am running Cayenne 6 pots with no issues. I know guys who are running RS4 8 pots with no drama...

    LOL. Well I've been driving my cousin's 335bhp Big Turbo TT around daily at normal speeds, and he's running the ECS Stage 5 Kit with 6 Pot Cayenne Turbo Calipers and its just fine, no problems at all. Of course when you stamp on them they are fantastic. I really can't wait.

    Quattronics are specialists in this field, so I doubt there will be a problem, at least I hope not :scared2: I've been driving my cousin's 335bhp Big Turbo TT around and he's running the ECS Stage 5 Kit like you are they are SUPERB. I agree with you about the master cyclinder as at £1500 I could have gone for ECS/RS4.

    Cheers Steve. Unsure what colour now, I do want them to stand out.

    Not really.

    I have 345mm S3 setup on my A3 and i also have the 312 rear setup.

    the 345mm seems fine and defo stops more quicker compared to before. i thought the back end was going to popping out and really twitchy when braking but nothing - so ive not put the rears on.

    Nath - Brakes look awesome fella - should fill those 20s nicely. Paint them silver - will contrast nicely with your wheels (if your still painting them the colour you said before!) - god buy :D

    BTW - i had a C63 AMG the other day and if the brakes on that were anything to go on, it will handle your car with eaaasssee!

    Cheers Kaz, never knew you were running S3 brakes? Are you pleased with them. I'll get them refurbed in silver and keep the AMG badges I think. I'm getting the wheels powdercoated anthracite this week. Then slap them on next weekend I hope.

    Hey Chris,

    I'm getting rid of the 20"s now, getting some 19" Split rims instead.

    I'd go with anthracite or akoya silver, either should look good. Try and get them to match something else on the car ... the grill colour or centre cap colour etc.

    Update: Have just managed to buy some RS4 front discs from Phil at PW Motorsport for £460 instead of Audi's £686, so I'm quite happy with that!! Should be getting pads next week, so I'm hoping the brakes will be on by mid August!

    Born in bred in whitchurch, not sure if you know it? The sportback is alright lad, but when wheels go on and new short plates, it will up the levels, I'm getting there, really pleased with the car overall. I've got to pick my cousins TT next week, new interior going in, including buckets and then thats being detailed too. Plenty to be getting on with!

    Are the rear brakes still adequate with these huge beasts on the front?

    Funny you should say that, I've just got back from picking my wheels up from the refurbers. Abit of a cack photo to be honest, but you get the point.

    [​IMG]

    I don't see why not, isn't 75-80% done on the front. My cousin has ECS Cayenne 6 pot on his TT with tiny rear brakes and they are fine!
