    What ya bought mate?

    R32 brakes are only 4 pots aren't they? You can get standard S3 wheels over 4 pot Brembos so I'd think you'll be fine with R32 brakes.

    Anyway you have first refusals on my spacers in 3 weeks time ;)

    R32 brakes are twin pot, with 2 pistons on the same side of a sliding caliper. I think the discs are 334x32mm. they're big anyway.

    Old heavy design with iron calipers, and still sliding like the S3 312's, but much more power. Only down side is hugely expensive to replace discs, and very heavy.

    Better off with brembos if you have the chance, although for a road car R32's might be pretty good.

    Pretty sure they will fit under 17'' Avus too
