    I've just upgraded mine to s3 all round, I wanted to keep it looking OEM so brought the disc shields/guards from Audi as your standard ones will be to small. Some people just bend the standard ones back so they don't rub on the new disc but I suggest buying new ones. Not alot of money but worth it. All the bolts will be the same but you will want new caliper to carrier bolts (unless buying new pads, then they come with them).

    Ah sorry I must have been looking at 140 brake discs not the 170s
     
  14. Just installed front plus rear with brand new discs and pads manufactured by trw. I didnt have time to test them very well since here its raining but a first glance the braking is phenomenal :).
