I am going to purchase a set of Brembo 6pot front calipers but wanted to hear about potential figment issues. I don't want to discuss braking capabilities etc just simply if they will work or not. I appreciate your thoughts and time. I am looking at running a 350mm vented rotor so if you have a favorite rotor please share.

The calipers you want are the 18Z caliper. From my understanding the bolt location is still the same and they fit perfectly. There was another guy on here who put the 6 pot calipers on his, I think they were yellow. I had actually pondered the same thing on mine but wasn't sure about the abs coding. I'd bet one of the V8 R-Line guys could chime in with that though since they still have 350mm rotors up front. I had the 18Z calipers on the front of my S4 and really liked the feel of them.

You can probably pick up a used set and powdercoat / rebuild them. It would most likely still end up costing way less than new.

Which ever way you go, it is essential to recode your ABS to suit the altered braking configuration. Failure to do so, may have very adverse effects on the ABS and ESP performance.

This is what I did fitting 17z Brembo 6 Pots on 330 mm discs on an MY08 with 17" rims.

Did you install the 18Z's? I am new to the forum and new to my T3. I am also interested in putting on some 18Z and cannot find anyone who has done it or can speak of fitment. If you know of a link I would appreciate it. Thx

I usaed 17Z, but 18Z is exactly the same but you need 18" rims to clear them.
