I recently bought a S3 disc/pad combo with the part numbers I previously posted aye. The ebay user asked me for my numberplate and tried telling me they were the wrong ones for my car and cancelled my order. Then referred me to some S2 stuff. I told him he was wrong, he told me I was wrong, and then I told him he was wrong again :lol: :lol: . Then I bought the same kit again. They fit perfect! :lol:

So I'm confused as to the disc depth for the front. I havent taken the discs off the car yet but measured them and from the back of the disc to the hub face its 60mm (ish)

When I search 250x60 discs it comes up with ebc D344 but then says these are FC ones yet some places say they fit an FB and some say they won't.

The D505 thats been recommended here are 90mm so not if thats right for my car?

I've either missed 30mm from the measurements or I've not taken something into account

I'm in the uk so the shipping is more than the discs and work out same costs as o es available in the UK. Im just co fused about the height/depth measurements on the discs available.

Take a note of the part numbers here. These are the correct EBC front / rear rotors. Just ignore the engine size info.

I order the d435 for the rears and d505 for the fronts.

My cars been off the road for years and I'm used to working on Nissan so I'm wondering do I need to swap over the bearings and the wheel studs from the old stuff or has corrosion seized it all together ?
