    Got these at a steal off ebay, when they arrived I was a little disappointed at the state of them.
    stripped them down and cleaned them up along with a lick of paint. need help with a few things...

    what is the round thing that has corroded? and can anyone give me the part number?
    I also need the rigid pipe on the back and bracket.

    Last of all what are peoples opinions on either new S3 retainers or do I go VW R ones ?

    I think new ones are cheap from Audi possibly only a tenner if I remember as I looked at getting some after acid wheel cleaner faded the paint on my old ones.

    Worth a check

    The round part is a form of sound damper similar to the ones on the RS3 Brembo Caliper, they use them to counteract certain frequencies when people have brake Squeal/noise......

    If I remember rightly on my previous S3 there was one on each front Caliper.
