Audi S3 brake upgrade
« on: November 29, 2021, 02:13:52 pm »
Hi, can anyone provide a list of 310mm rear brake calipers that will bolt straight on? I have searched the forum, completed Google, drunk a lot of tea...I still don't understand which year Audi S3 310mm rear  brakes will fit my Edition 30? Please help! I have learnt that TT Mk2 3.2 ones will also fit? I don't want blue r32 ones !!

Not that I've fitted a set... yet anyway.

But my understanding is you have the following options:
8P S3
8J TT with the 310mm calipers
Mk5 r32
Mk6 golf r

The Leon cupra has the biggest fronts of 345 but retains the smaller 282/286 smaller solid rears I believe.

I refute to click auto doc link. They are bullsh*t.

Do you need to change the calipers?

Yup /\

An absolute spamming nightmare of a company that forces you to install their stupid phone app, even when saying no to the pop up from google links.

Just use ECP or CarParts4Less (same company).   AutoDoc are part of a massive warehouse group in Europe (including onlinecarparts and many others) and entirely shat and overpriced.
