DONT Buy them, get aftermarket discs, ttrs /RS3 Discs are not handed and the left doesn’t cool properly and always warp
Google it and you’ll see it’s a big issue, I was on a TT forum for years and heard lots about it

By aftermarket do you have an example as I'm currently running TTRS discs and although i don't have any issues at min would be nice to know of alternative thanks.

In respect to OP there's a difference in the offset i believe between RS3 and TTRS discs that's what i was told

Oh ok was trying to figure out was it was because most sellers are saying both ttrs and rs3 makes it hard to differentiate.
You got a part number for yours?
Any pics?

Yellow looks good I don’t want to change it but the vans red. I think powercoating isn’t that hard it’s just taking everything off and not having the van.

Yea you need the 55mm hubs to mount them calipers, as they have the seperate carrier, the 50mm hubs have the carrier all part of the hub
