    well, i think you'll need to find right set of discs, and make caliper carriers. then maybe even the brake lines.

    Thats what I seem to be gathering. May end up cosimg more than hunting for ttrs brakes. Hmm I should really ask question of how much do calipers cost to make for to fit and who knows where to go.

    Alex theres a guy over on the A4 section that has converted his car to Porsche brakes....he has a contact abroad that can supply the whole kit for something like £500 so its a no brainer really. I will PM you his name if you wanna contact him.

    Are these 350mm discs? I have 18" wheels on my S3. Do I need anything else to make these fit. I.e adapters or spacers?? Thanks.
