Hey guyz
I have purchased drilled grooved vented front brake discs (these : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290343719759?ul_noapp=true ) and i ended up sending them back .. the hole in them middle was bigger than on current ones.. So discs couldn't be installed but on ebay clearly says my car ( A3 2.0 TDi 170 8P)

So now I am looking for new ones I have attached picture you can guys see like one mm or 1.5mm difference
mine middle rim is smaller new one is on top of mine
Can't believe it made not to fit
Can you advise me which should I get ?
Thnx in advance

Demon Tweeks have some pretty good offers on at the moment, I did order some Brembo discs and pads for mine but sadly they couldn't get them to me on time so I had to go OEM, which was £10-15 more expensive than the Brembo kit!

To be fair, £70 a side is very good value for Brembo discs (that was the quote on my S3).
For under £100 you are looking OEM at best. Anything too cheap is likely to be cheap for a reason, and they are the only thing stopping you when you need to stop.

I just put brembo 330 mm front discs and bremo pads on my A3 170. Cost £115 delivered from ebay.

Juat made sure you get the right sized disc. 170 comes with different sized discs and pads. Look at the label in your book for the part code and match against the brakes your odering.

Hi JPS,
Which code is this and where is it? My disks need renewing so just trying to check if they’re 280 or 330
Thanks

Sorry meant 312mm. I put 330 in due to looking st 330mm rear discs for my RS5. Discs in the brain.

I ordered these and fit perfectly:

Your PR code is on your label in boot. Where is says options look at 2nd line down 3rd code in. Mine is 1ZA. That's the front disc code so you need to ensure they are correct ones.

Or who remove wheel and measure disc with tape measure difference between 280 and 312mm is easy enough to measure.

I know I have 1ZA = 312mm front 1KD 255 rear I already have read drilled grooved solid as I don't have quattro and I purchased drilled grooved front discs but they didn't fit inner hole was only 1,5mm bigger so it was wobbling they had to put original back
