Hello all,

I've recently been in contact with the brake god (Dave b) about a brake upgrade on my 2012 s3, Only problem is I can not decide which route to go down, my choices are;

- Audi ttrs/rs3 kit & upgrade mc from dave in few months, is the pedal travel that bad with standard mc or could I cope for couple months on standard mc?
- 996tt calipers with 350mm drilled discs & custom carriers.
- Audi r8 rear calipers with the 350mm drilled discs & custom carriers

Please help, with pro & cons of all & any experice with these kits

I will hardly track car. Maybe once a year, mainly fast road. I'm after a bbk as I don't think the oem ones are good enough if I'm going to stage 2+ in near future.

They will be under 18" bbs ch so plenty of room :)

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Tbh if you're using your vehicle for mainly road use most of what you suggest is probably overkill. A set of decent pads / discs should suffice for what you need. I have EBC, not saying they're the best but they are an improvement over OEM and suit my purposes fine

i had an s3 8p with uprated discs & pads before, i didnt like it, complete waste of time & money in my opinion. the s3 should have 4pots as standard instead of 1pots! :)
