    Hi all,

    Excuse my ignorance, I read through the brake fitment thread and still no clearer. Anyone know if I could fit TTRS or RS3 brakes and disks inside 18" RS6-type wheels?

    What's the fitment on a non-S3 2.0tfsi? do they require adapters etc?

    Cheers people.

    Huh, you just got your S3 brakes delivered today, which are bolt on, lol.

    I don't think RS6 18's will clear tbh mate given the thickness of the spokes, TD 18's will.

    You would need TTRS discs & RS3/TTRS calipers as the RS3 discs are too wide & wont allow caliper to bolt to hubs.

    You will laugh but I have a set of RS3/TTRS calipers here I'm possibly selling as I had 2 sets, but you'd need discs/pads.

    LOL Nigel! I'm just going over my options again to make sure I made the best decision before bolting these on. Can't afford new wheels atm so that answers that.

    You are making my wallet nervous though ... I won't ask you to PM me a price for the TTRS callipers ... :p

    lol, just bolt them on you tart, you wont need tt parts either as the 8P setup will hold them no problem :)

    You should have a pad sensor on existing brakes on front passenger wheel ready to plug in, if any issues give me a bell.

    You're right. I shall also step away from the mulled wine and ebay ... it will only end badly.

    Just a small word of warning, I have seen a few sets of nearly new RS3 / TTRS brakes for sale in different places at what seem like a resonable cost. I am guessing though these are available due the fact Audi are replacing RS3 & TTRS , discs pads and calipers under waranty due to to the awful squeel the origals were making. YOu may get better but noisier brakes!
