    I think I read some,vagoc I think.... that you can fit S3 front calipers to the rear with light modification? Is this true? I think it would look sick.

    The first one, I have no idea how brakes work, didn't think about the handbrake. Can't the front caliper work as handbrake as well. I mean it's just a piston moving up and down no? I know I read it somewhere.

    Surely that would be even more bizarre - especially as the tie rods are there!
