    Anyone know/find out if they would fit onto an A3?

    I'm guessing no, but would be interesting

    If your talking about the 385mm ones on Pistonheads i wouldn`t bother even if they did as you will need 20" alloys for them to fit.

    He says that he's fitted 18's over them (just) but 19's would be ideal....

    They should fit under 18" wheels, I have 370 disc's under my 18" wheels but I did have to put spacers on to clear the brake caliper from the wheel balance wheights.
    not sure if the discs will line up with the rest of the brake parts though but will defo fit under the 18's

    Just had that done mate! Very very good mod.

    Great brakes which match up with the master cylinder very well so a firm standard feel to the brake pedal and no excess travel on the pedal at all so a big improvment on some upgrades where too big a caliper is used!

    They defo fill the wheel space up too.
