Alfred,

The upgrade only requires new rotors (312mm), TT caliper carriers, and 16" rims. You do not need to replace the calipers. But while you are at it you might as well replace the pads and brake fluid.

Many tuners sell the rotors, pads, and TT carriers as kits.

Here are a few.

Advanced Motorsport Solutions
Autobahn Designs
Autotech
Sport Tuning AutoThority

Euro Sport Accessories
Eurotech Racing
GAK Motorsports
GPR Parts New Dimensions
Total Audi Performance (TAP)
GreedSpeed
VW Custom Speed
VWSport USA
Wetterauer Automotive Sports Car Accessories…
Velocity Sport Tuning
MG Racing
AWE
Hofsport
Euroselect Mach V
German Auto Parts
Virtual Auto Parts


Hope this helps.

In my opinion I think that ECS Tuning has the BEST brake upgrades for the money!

For $660 you can get new ceramic brake pads and 13.1" rotors! That is 2" bigger then stock! BTW I am referring to the front rotors!

Check them out, they are amazing!

Doesn't W8 brakes require stealing the whole spindle?
