As most of you know, I do like to make things and make improvements, but not pay tuner's or dealer prices. :D

I have made a batch of rear caliper covers that should fit most models (unfortunately not had the opportunity to trial fit others, but I know they fit A5, S5, RS5, Q5, SQ5, A4, S4, RS4, and probably A6 models. Just measure your caliper.
Width at widest point - 112mm, width at bottom - 75mm, Height 54mm.

These covers are fitted to SQ5, later RS5s and I think B9 S5. But the OEM covers supplied by the dealer are more flat and have locating lugs, so you need holes in the calipers to fit these. The covers I have made use very high bond 3M tape, which is used on aftermarket spoilers etc and when fitted correctly, stick permanently.

Note, if you're due a rear pad replacement, then do the pads before fitting these covers. They will come off, just you will need replacement glue tape. :)

I have upgraded my front calipers with Brembo 4 pots and put S5 decals on them, which made the rears look a little standard, so I made these covers. They finish the rear brakes really nicely.

They are laser cut in 1mm stainless steel. So rigid enough for purpose, but can be manipulated to follow the contour of the brake caliper. They are all bent to suit the rear caliper on the B8 chassis.

I'm selling these covers at £35 per pair (Dealers want £42+ per side!) and will come finished in gunmetal grey, VHB tape applied, and alcohol wipes to clean the caliper (ensure caliper face is clean and free or dirt/rust before cleaning with wipe).

As a personalisation option, I can offer a paint colour of your choice (standard caliper paint colours) and decals for £45. See my gloss black with S5 decals below. :)

If you're interested in a set message me or email me on [email protected]

I'll grab a set in the near future. Still waiting on a used set of Q5 front calipers to pop up on eBay

Those Brembo 4 pots do seem to have disappeared now! Except the 320mm versions! :(

I did see some B9 S5 calipers, tapered 6 pot for about £500. These would be good as they have the tapered pistons and they are radially mounted, so you can chose your disc size!! :)

Ah, sorry Aswad, I saw the B9 6 pots when I was looking for mine, but the tight wad in me went for the £150 Brembo 4 pots! :)

But try a search, there are some 18Zs on there from the Q7 I searched for 'Audi 6 pot calipers'. I presume they fit, but not sure. They use a 350mm disc, but that only an extra 2.5mm on the outer part of the disc over the 345mm S5 discs. Looks like £450ish is the price to get you into multi pot calipers.
