    Hi guys

    just wondering if there is a upgrade i can do to my 2011 A3 FWD 2.0tdi black edition to make them look less small and pathetic lol. did consider s3 rears but seems too much more having to change the complete hubs. is there a way i can just get lager carriers at all. I've emailed dave the brake guru a few times for some advise on a few different things but his never got back to me.

    Thank

    Jamie

    One option ,which Dave gave me was to uprate the rear discs with something like a set of ZeroSixty discs,and also change the pads for something a bit more aggressive.

    In my case it was a fairly track-oriented pads,but you would probably find DS2500 pads a decent road compromise.

    Ahhh...got it.

    I'm not sure you're going to get anything larger under there without changing calipers and carriers etc,but it may be worth dropping N8 a line.

    Ahhh no problem, I thought there might of been a option just to replace discs and carriers to slightly larger versions but keep calipers. i've sent a message regarding the S3 setup. so we'll see what keep comes back with.

    Thanks Alex
