I have a S4 B5 with B6 discs, what caliper upgrade would be ideal, RS4's?
Ive got 6 pot Cayenne turbo calipers to go on. Forget RS4's, they are £500 for a pair of discs. I'll be running mercedes ml55 discs which can be had for as little as £45 a pair.
so you already have B6 S4 setup on the front?
if so, why are you wanting to upgrade?
Andy, go with what lee has said. I think thats the best setup for our cars.
Im not a fan of my b7 brakes, if i had the money i think i would go for the 6 pot porsche calipers and if ml discs can be had for that little then i would be delighted as the rs4 discs are £600+ from the dealers im sure and can be had from a few places for a little less. If you do got b7 then get the phaeton discs as they are half the price of the b7 discs. You will need the b7 bell to make the disc fit as the phaeton's bell is the wrong offset .
Craig, andy has the b6 discs and uses the movit 4 pot calipers.
going from movit 4 pots on a 345mm B6 S4 disk, to Cayennes on a 345mm Merc disk, isnt really an upgrade at all... Its just a different set of components achieving exactly the same thing.
