Just bought used front callipers from a R32 incl brackets, quite cheap I think. Maybe I’ll go for new sealings and so on. Discs and pads not that expensive either I think. Anyone know the OEM brake pad numbers? Just to make sure I order the right ones.

Any suggestions on what colour I should paint the calipers in?
Got a red car. Blue, red or black?

Also, where did you buy the pad retainers? S3 or R mark?

The S3 ones look really good, DTE have a youtube for swapping his, and seems fairly bolt-off-bolt-on, and it's reasonable to maintain cost...

I’ve been looking at Porsche Mccan brakes as a replacement.
