    How were the brembo's did they improve your breaking? I was led to belive there isnt a b6 s4.... Maybe they meant there isnt a b6 rs4!

    You can fit either b5 s4 or b6 b7 s4 brake upgrades all depends on your budget really I have b5 s4 setup to put on as it came up for cheap.

    There is no b6 rs4 but the are plenty of s4's. I like the brembos and for the money im happy with them. Had ebc ultimax dimpled and grooved before the brembos. They looked good behind the wheel but were **** when they got warm and produced loads of brake dust and didnt last very long.

    Pabs can you send me a link from where you got your brake setup? Did you go for 312mm discs?

    Yes mate 312mm and 255mm rear that's standard fitment on the 190's, I went on the brembo online parts catalogue to get the correct part numbers for the discs and pads then had a look on eBay. Definitely check the part numbers as loads of sellers were trying to sell me the wrong size discs and the wrong pads, I will try and find the seller I got mine off and get the part numbers for you
