I just got S3 carriers discs and pads,I used original calipers.

That is what you need, search 312 brakes on ebay for the carriers if you want them brand new, or try and find a used set of Audi S3, 225TT and some higher powered B5 Passat/Audi A4's should do the trick, then 312 brake disks for S3/TT225/Leon Cupra(not R), and any pads that fit the caliper(must be 'Lucas' calipers I think?).


Smell my finger.
Its just discs and carriers isnt it?, calipers are the same so the A3 pads will be just fine
