If you want to have good braking power and if you upgrade to BBK on A5 models or S5 is it recommended to upgrade brake cylinder and brake booster too.

I have 2 sets for B8 here. NEW

I have an A5 and decided to just use EBC rotors and RedStuff pads. Definitely an upgrade over stock. Plenty of stopping power and way better than stock. In my opinion upgrading to RS rotors and calipers is a waste of money that can be used elsewhere.

I did plenty of research and searching on the internet before purchasing anything over year ago. Bought everything on sale and I don't remember the total cost. Sorry. Most kits don't come with EBC RedStuff pads so you need to search for that option. I would rather buy new than used because you really don't know what you're getting with used components.

Sorry. My fault. I wanted to ask how much is for brake booster. Pressed the wrong quote. Sorry

Are they just the calipers painted black?

Nope, actual S5 calipers which I had to tart up. Couldn't afford the replacement covers for now, so went for the cheaper option of decals. The replacement covers are on my list of things to do in the near future. Fixing up the house is taking most of my money atm

I had to paint Calipers too as carriers came painted and look shiny.

I did swap my A5 320mm to S5 345mm EBC https://ebcbrakes.com/product/usr-slotted-rotors/ and Redstuff pads. A little humm sound while hard breaking on the slots, but overall like it so far.

@Pulsarlaser more info on vents within front fog grilles pls. I was looking for some ready-made options with no luck until now :/

The Fog Grilles that let the air through into the vents are the S-line B8 Honeycomb RS style ones now available on eBay:
RS5 Style Black Fog Light Grilles w/ Black/ Chrome Trim for 08-12 Audi A5 S-Line/S5 B8
The Vents are for a TTRS but you need to do a custom fit job to your wheel arch liners as they aren't a direct fit: 8J0821191G / 8J0821192D
There are also Porsche Macan plastic baffle air-ducts you can fit with clips onto the Track rod arms: 95B615447B / 95B699011B
