92' S4 brake upgrade

With the BIRA S2 UFO, it's completely bolt-on, except for the
modification to the rotors part.
If you have the "pie plate" Speedlines, they should clear these brakes
w/o any problems.
As for brake pads, I don't know about availability in your country,
but Porsche 996 pads are fairly common- a lot of brake pad companies
offer pads in this size. Hawk HP/HP Plus/Blue/Black, Pagid
Black/Blue/Orange/Yellow, Porterfield R4S/R4, Carbotech
Bobcat/Panther/etc., Mintex Red Box/C-Tech, Porsche/Textar OEM, to
name a few.
The adapter bracket is the only part that you'll need to acquire from
BIRA. This seems to be the sticking point- no one seems to want to
actually step up and get some sets of brackets.
For hard use or repeated high speed stops, there is no comparable
system that is completely reversible. If that is not an issue, then
2Bennett and Anderson Motorsports offer non-reversible modifications
that allow you to mount Porsche 993tt calipers over either Euro A8
(314x30) rotors or A8L rotors (323x30). FYI, the MBZ rotors are a
better design than the Audi rotors- directionally vaned, asymmetrical
