    As title will the s3 caliper retainer fit onto r32 calipers? Seen a cheap set of r32 brakes but would like them to be like the s3 ones with the logo. Thanks

    Yes I think that would work as they are the same as 3.2 ones and have seen it done on those.

    They are pricey though!

    thanks mate, in that case im getting them tommorrow £350 for front and rear with calipers and carriers with discs and no pads, but il probably get yellowstuff to go woth them. will strip the colour and paint them black? (opionions) and get the s3 retainers on them. :)

    The badges do fit, seen someone buy a pair, paint them red and fit them to their Leon Cupra with some "SEAT motorsport" stickers replacing the S3 logos. They were £20 each of something soft like that!

    r32 are blue, cupra are red and s3 are black. What colour do you think I should paint them? I have 18" black RS4s. Do i need to change brakes hoses/lines or straight fit?
