Front and rear brake upgrade for S6

Hi,

As i understand, the C5 S6 is using the same shi* calipers as the B5 S4, Lucas HP2 ones!? And with the search, it looks like the disc size are the same also in front and rear. So my question is, have anyone upgraded front and rear brakes to B6/B7 S4 ones? As i have a set of front+rear calipers from the B6 S4, i was wondering is it the same to fit them to C5 S6 as to B5 S4? For the S4, its bolt-on on the front and just a little mess to the rear to fit.

Really? I thought that they are identical to FL B5 S4 ones, as the disc sizes are the same. On B5 RS4, rear discs are much bigger, is the caliper really the same?

But still waiting for the answer about the B6/B7 S4 brake conversion, hoping its going to work as easy as on B5 S4.

carriers might be different but when I broke my C5 S6 after I bought my B5 RS4 I needed the calipers and they are now on my RS4 - exactly the same

Why not go for the rs6 mate. Mega stoppers. 8 pots up front.

I imagine but thats not a point. As i already have B6 S4 brake setup i want to know can i use them as easy as on B5 S4. Price difference for the discs and pads compared to RS6 ones are HUGE, and B6 brakes stopping power is really great for the money.
