I have a 5 lug converted coupe (a4 hub in rear and urs4 hub in front) that needs new breaks.

I have a set of s4 b5 front and rear caliper that were given to my by a friend. I would like to use on my coupe.

Anyone know if this is possible? somebody told me that it is possible to run b5 s4 calipers on coupe with 5 lug but not sure what I will need to make it happen. What rotors, brackets, etc?

Thanks!

Thanks Varia. I read about other options.

I only drive the car a couple of hours on Sundays. Just road driving. So not looking into getting anything really expensive.

Since I already have the b5 s4 calipers, I was wondering if I can use them.

I also have a 1.8t b5 a4 with the hp2 brakes. For what I use my car for, they work ok.

Can't comment on the fronts but the rears you're going to run into issues bleeding the brakes because the bleed nipples are pointing down. If you want to use the rotors (which are a nice upgrade) you'll want to use D2A8 calipers and S8 carriers.

Speaking from personal experience, you're best served looking at other paths for an upgrade. Maybe keep an eye on the local junkyards for some Touareg or Cayenne front calipers. There are also other bolt ons for the rear like C4S4/6 calipers and rotors, or I believe some people are fitting B6/7S4 rears as well.
