    What makes you think they're the same? I'm pretty sure they're not.

    Here's a pic of my B6 S4 calipers (front before painting, rear after etc) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

  3. They look the same, and the Disc diameter is the same!

    Look the same to me, but sometimes you can't tell off a picture.

    Trident, what is it you're looking for with the brake upgrade? Better stopping or just better looks?
     
  6. I was lying if I sad that it was only for better stopping, but the look is not the big issue!

    I've seen it documented somewhere that the 3.2 uses the old (B5) RS4 front brake set up. Cant remember where it was though...

    That is correct I think
     
  9. I thought that the TT 3.2 and the old RS4 has the same capiler a 2 piston one. That is what the Etka says atleast. But the A3 3.2 has another single piston one that looks exactly like the S4 B6 one! But I don´t know what the etka says..

    i don't know if the same, but my stock calipers were able to support 320mm discs they had 2 piston on same side. and fit in the 16 inch rims,

    the hps plus pads are great and the grooved ecs discs are light with good reaction to the pads, and they make a cool humming sound when they rotate /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    There is a nice article in VW driver this month, where a guy with a R32 upgrades to ECS big brakes, from a porsche cayenne V8.

    His contact was with:

    I supplied him with the kit from ECS. We (JBR) are the UK Importer for ECS Tuning.

    Has anyone got a copy that they could scan in?
