    You're best measuring them as i've noticed when doing my brakes, there are 3 sizes. And please don't write in text speak, its highly annoying (from one Scot to another ;) )

    It might be worth going onto the website of a brake disc supplier and entering your car's details. Try this one.

    I've tried that and they still got it wrong. I'm upgrading to 3.0TDi brakes soon, as frankly the quattro's are terrible. Someone on here said I couldn't fit S4 brakes, which is really annoying as i can get them nearly new for sod all :(

    Awesome :) RS4 brakes would be epic, although maybe over kill for my derv bus.

    If you look on the chassis/build sticker you can determine the size of discs from that - 1LZ (288x22mm), 1LB/1LE (288x25mm), 1LT/1LF (312x25mm), or 1LA (320x30mm).

    But to be absolutely sure your best off measuring.

    Oh, regarding the RS4 brakes, have you priced up the discs alone?? - i hope your sitting down.

    I had a 650bhp Evo 9GT with 356mm discs running DS3000 pads before this, trust me, cost on these things never phases me.
