Hi everyone

I just finished retrofitting brembo brakes to my cupra 280 and its looks so amazing :)

Parts:
- 8J0 615 301 F x2 (discs)
- 8J0 615 107 x1 (used calipers from audi ttrs 2013 repainted to RAL3020 )
- 8J0 615 108 x1 (used calipers from audi ttrs 2013 repainted to RAL3020 )
- 5F0 615 311 x1 (cover plate for brake disc - left)
- 5F0 615 312 x1 (cover plate for brake disc - right)
- WHT 005 227 x6 (screws for cover plate)
- 8V0 407 811 x1 (air guide - left from audi RS3 2017>) just a little modification is required
- 8V0 407 812 x1 (air guide - right from audi RS3 2017>) just a little modification is required
- brake pads are oem (i got it with calipers and they are almost brand new) later i will go with some Ferodo DS2500
- Brake lines are from HEL (www.helperformance.com)

I also need to add 5mm wheel spacers, with my OZ X5B 19X8J ET48 wheels

It cost me around 1400€ (with some discounts to oem parts) and used calipers (almost brand new)

Where did you get the shields from? Dealer or used?

Dealer in Athens quoted a silly price, something like 400€ because he claimed the parts are discontinued.:ROFLMAO: Of course I just cut the factory shields so they can clear the 370mm disks.

I buyed it from dealer aroud 25€ for one side
You should ask again with this two part numbers
5F0 615 311 and 5F0 615 312. It cant be 400€ ?

Yes some time ago there are this two part numbers 5F0073911 and 5F0073911A , but this two was now canceled and replaced (this parts number cost 200€ for one ?)

I’ve acquired my brembos from an 8P RS3.

Need to find a local brake specialist that can refurb them.
