    i will be refurbing the pistons with a good clean and new seals and putting braided lines.

    Yeah right bargain! I would go for Ferodo DS-2500's. Awesome pads. But as usual, because of the performance they are pricey (but IMO worth it!).

    The calipers are not big but the discs are bigger then S4 360mm and you need 18" rims it won't fit under 17"

    I've got some part worn DS2500 rear RS4 pads if you want them. Still got quite a bit of meat on them and they are in good condition.

    I've 'downgraded' to B6 S4 rears because of the ludicrous price of replacement RS4 rear discs (£450!).

    got these this morning, going to be fitting on the weekend once i get DOT 5.1 fluid, this setup should give me a substantial upgrade over my standard S4 brakes which i think lack stopping power.

    Do you really need to put DOT 5.1? as I only used DOT 4.

    Nez, DOT 4 will be sufficient don't worry.

    I would say those hoses are axle to caliper for the rear, other wise they are far too long for any of the other applications i can think of
