Would the S3 (2016) break fits an A3 (2007) 8p?

I'm pretty sure they will fit as long as your a3 has a 55mm strut as opposed to 50mm strut. The 2016 model rs3 brakes fit older A3's so logic would have it that the s3 brakes would work

I guess there is just one way to find out. lol

Thanks guys :)
Quick way to find out is just measure across the disc face as its only the thickness that gets smaller not the disc face

No problem. can I ask, how did you get on with the brake lines? Did you use something to stop the brake fluid coming out? And how did you go about bleeding the brakes?
Thanks

The brakes fitted perfectly, as far as I know there is no breaking fluid coming out (only when we were bleeding the brakes)
About bleeding them, I was pumping about 12x and holding it all the way to the floor and my mate was bleeding it, also topping up on the top so we made sure no air was going in.
But the brakes are sharp! The car now feels like brand new (the brakes part of it )
