    Not sure, i thought we used our calipers and bought different brackets to mount them from a TT as they push the caliper further out to accomodate the 312mm discs

    You are correct, he just needs the TT carriers and not calipers and then the A8 discs.

    Probably, but no good for an upgrade to 312 mm discs without the mounting brackets

    if there is no chance of those fitting my car, what are the part numbers, and the part, and from what car do i need.

    nothing seems to be straight forward on this car. :(

    Adam, as I told you before, those MAY fit your car, with TT carriers and A8 312mm discs.

    But no need, if the calipers are similar to yours, just extra money you don't need to spend.

    does anyone have a part number for the tt carriers? as they will go on my own calipers and that would work wouldn't it?

    if so i need a part number and try to source some.
    getting annoyed at doing anything on this car. everything seems to be a mission of a job :(

    i tried getting the brackets froma vw/audi specialist today and they only list the caliper for that part number.

    does this conversion work??
    does anyone have it on thier car?
    and possibly want to sell it. getting really tired of trying to improve this car. fed up already. all i wanna do is make it stop better.

    I may be wrong, but i wouldn't have thought that bigger discs would have that much effect on day to day driving. The pad size is exactly the same, you would just have a better heat dissipator, which should really only come into play under hard sustained braking on a track day or the like.

    i may put grooved std disks and uprated pads on, and briaded lines will that be ok?

    Thats a different story. well if you're going to the nurburgring i would definately look at upgrading the brakes pads. Standard road pads are not designed for track use
