You are nearly right. The normal S6(5-Cylinder and 8-Cylinder) and the S6+ have the same brake disc and the the same brake pads. Only the brake calipers are different, according order numbers.

Pads: 4D0 698 451 A
Disc: 857 615 601
Brake caliper:
S6+: 4A0 615 423 A and 4A0 615 424 A
S6 : 447 615 423 and 447 615 424

No liability assumed!

Look at: http://www.s6plus.de/Galerie/DavidB1.jpg ! You will see a big black movit caliper.
According the order numbers are all parts the same like the normal S6. Only the caliper is different. I think he has another brake piston/forcer(sorry my english is not so good), presumptive with an another diameter.

I understand, newer heard the word caliper before. Does the RS2 brakes fit the plus in the rear?

I´m too, I looked in the translator and the result was: bremssattel=caliper.
I don´t know. Maybe, but you must look at the brake balance, too. For example a VW Golf 2(vintage till 1991) has a brake balance of 63:37. 63% for the front brake and 37% for the rear brake. If the RS2 calipers are too strong, you can get oversteering when you brake in a curve.

The RS2 brakes are 299 x 24mm for the rear.

The S6 Plus front brake discs are 323 x 30 mm. I don't think the "normal" S6 has 323 mm's. I think they are slightly smaller in diameter.

Regards,

Anders

As it seems the PLUS's front rotors are the same size as S8 rotors. If someone can check the part codes then we can make sure.... Normal S6 has smaller ones on front and rear. Funny thing is that I have the firm name LUCAS in the center of the calipers. But I have seen that the factory caliper should be from Girling???

Hello,

I'd like to improve the braking action of the Plus, making a strong stop from over 200 km/h pretty scared me: the car is heavy and the brakes are old.
Maybe the pads had loose a part of their friction properties, even if they're not worn and the original discs also same not worn. Maybe the car has been used for short trips before I own it.

I read here about Movit brakes, what does Movit brakes kit consist of?

Only front discs+calipers or also the rear discs+ calipers?

What about the pads? What do you suggest?

Are there any aero-pipes for the Plus?

Please If anybody wants, may you post some links about where to buy the parts?

Thank you and best regards,
Giacomo.
