    I recently had to buy a new rear caliper as the old one had siezed, got it from audi and was raped for £110 IIRC, the fronts were a lot cheaper! Go figure that one out :ermm:

    Must admit, that does seem pretty steep . . . there are a couple of S3s being broken on eBay at the moment, get in touch.
