B7 RS4 brakes

Hi all.
I am going to install B7 RS4 brakes to my S3 8p.(just fronts)
My original brakes are 345mm w/1pot and want to install 365mm 8piston system. b7's are 5x112 and s3's 5x112 too. I will use stock rs4 calipers and discs + ferodo ds2500 pads and stainless steel brake lines.
Also i  will use rs4 caliper brackets. I need some extra parts to install this kit : centring rings and spacing washers. Somebody told me that i will need to machine the corner edge of my wheel hubs to allow the original RS4 bells to fit correctly.
What do you guys think of that ?

should fit seen a set on a mk4 golf, alot of people use the b5 rs4 as a upgrade to.

I think you need new caliper mounts. The holes are closer together....

@musty
You are right. I know some guys who did that before. I have never made this kind of conversion before.  I will track the car so dont want to get in trouble with it. What do you guys think of custom rings, washers and corner machining things? Can they make a problem ?

@MarkB
I will try the rs4's brackets when they arrive but if i cant use it, then we will make custom brackets.
MarkB

I think the TT shop might do brackets

@MarkB
I sent a mail to TTshop. This is what they told to me "You will need to use the original RS4 caliper brackets"

I think the owner of the mk4 was A guy called Gregg well that was the plate MRC boys know him might bealbe to help you out

Greg Howell IIRC, from Southam Bodies.

Looks like the MK4 needed new brackets. I can check the hole spacing on the B7 and MK5 if you like?
Olynth

Musty and Adam thanks. I will try to reach him.

@MarkB
You are right. MK4 needed new brackets and also MK4s are 5x110, MK5s are 5x112.
I will be appreciate that if you can check it for me.
MarkB

I can confirm the MK5 mounts are the same pitch as the B7 RS4





I'll also move this thread to the S3 forum as the info is specific to that model.

@MarkB
Wow! I am really happy to hear that. Thanks alot. so there is no problem about the brackets
