    Hi guys new here so sorry if this has been covered before which brembo 4 pots bolts straight on I have just bought a 56 plate a4 avant s sline and it has them already on
    The callipers are green I presume they have been painted this colour ?
    What I need to know is what are they off as there is no paperwork with the car relating to the brakes I have some nasty porsche cayenne wheels I want to sell but unsure what will go over the brakes hence my predicament
    Any advice would be helpful
    I have checked them out and defiantly bolt straight on with no adapters and the discs are a 1 piece disc vented and drilled and seem to be pretty big
    Sorry for the long post I have tried to include as much as what I can
    Thanks

    they are 1LE's by the look of it mate, same as mine. from a touareg, now then, about finding some wheels, i can run standard s line 18" with 12mm spacer or my rs6 19's with a 7mm spacer, had a nightmare and a long traipse round wheel shops trying to find some that would go over them, best of luck mate.

    dont forget you'll need 12mm spacers as well on the standard 18's mate, or they wont go anywhere near
