    I've finally had it with the brakes on my recently purcahse B5 A4, I think I was spoilt a bit with my B7 that has recently been returned to the lease company. The pads and disks have recently been replaced about 1000 miles ago, but I'm still finding it a little slow on braking. Could someone who has done the bigger disk upgrade using the Audi TT brakes and B6 disks please post the shopping list on here so I can start looking for the parts required.

    Thanks alot guys, as always.

    you just need a pair of TT/S3 caplier carriers and the B6 312mm disks

    You use standard B5 pads and your original caliper.

    It's getting the carriers that's a pain. VAG Parts were doing them for about a ton delivered. Only place I can find for them is Audi direct and they want £120 a piece. Not funny :(

    Do we happen to have an Audi part number for the Caliper carriers I'll try my local motor factors as they do reconditioned brake parts.

    i'm pretty sure they are dealer only. Not really sure how vagparts were doing them so cheaply, i presume they must have been buying LOTS of them.

    I got mine for £50 from a breaking audi TT, the problem is, that most of the TT breakers sell the calipers disks and pads as a complete "upgrade kit" for mk4 golfs. You might find one that will sell you the complete calipers, but they'll probably want £50each for them

    I've upgraded my Golf turbo with annivesary brakes, 312mm ones:icon_thumright:
    The Annivesary was the 25th anniversary model, spoilers etc and a 180bhp as standard.
