Here is 17"s

you can probably do the 345mm with 18"'s with custom homemade adapters. 330 should be a HUGE improvement compared to what I had.

C3/C4 caliper, carrier, and pads

2001 S4 330mm x22mm (1mm turned off of each side and now 330x20) I didn't want to buy B5 carriers...

My adapters

2 bolts




Edit your post to say "2010-2011 Audi S4 330x22" ,, not 2001 which are 300mm

So what was the final consensus? To use UrS Pads one must shave 1mm per side off these discs... Or Use b5S4 pads and be good to go... no need to swap calipers with either pad?

Edited it. I don't know why I had the wrong year posted in there. Dumb mistake. I can go back and check my receipt to double check. I wound up using the thicker pads from the V8/200/C4S4. Then I turned the rotors down enough to where they would slide in the throat of the caliper without rubbing which wound up being resulting in turning the rotor 1mm off of each side. And to get into more detail, there are some metal tabs on the subframe that support the e-brake cables for each side... I removed those to give my cables more room to move so they aren't pulling at the calipers at an awkward angle. It might not be necessary for a stock height car but since mine is slammed, I made sure the cables could travel with the movement.

I guess my question is, why go through all that as opposed to just using the B5S4 pads? Maybe I lost track of the reason why somewhere along the lines... sorry

I used the thicker pads for longer wear life and also it keeps the piston closer inside the caliper bore which I believe is easier on the seals and wears less on the piston and bore and may even take less fluid to get the caliper to apply force and maybe affect stopping distance/power/reaction time. Just my opinion.

Interested in a couple sets of the brackets if you have any available.

Thx ....
