Re: Big Brakes using Audi discs?

Im pulling my hair out a bit with this conversion.

I have the EpyTec conversion kit for the 312mm discs and i have the ATE57 calipers to go on. However, I am struggling to find the correct carrier to make this work. Is someone able to point me in the right direction? Both sets I have ordered so far do not fit.

3B0615125 - These line up with the adapter but seem to be for 288mm discs?

You need the carriers from a 98-03 A6 2.5TDI. I did post all the relevant part numbers some years ago but can't find it at the moment. Regards Duncan.

so A6 1998 312mm brakes ITT/ATE ? are 4B0 615 125 A, later TEVES/ATE 288m are suffix B on a parts lookup, I'm not saying either are right, you would have thought Epytec would supply the correct information with the adapters especially if the are TUV approved it should be detailed on the approval cert. If it's just a TUV just for the materials then it's pretty much meaningless certification
If you check these part numbers out on Autodoc there's more info

None of the adaptors are TüV approved, they just have the meaningless material certification.

The fact that Epytec persist in using that TÜF certificate claim is enough to mark them up as chancers in my book, so NTBT.

OK had a chance to check what I fitted.
Front left caliper 8E0615123A
Front right caliper 8E0615124A
312 x 25 discs 4B0615301A
Carriers 3B0615125
Have you solved this yet? If not what is the fitment problem?
Regards D
