Get the 993tt (or the 928gts which are the reversed 993tt), Mike.  The 
996 are shorter but fatter. They will not fit under the OEM 6-spoke S6  
wheels, whereas the 993tt over the S8 rotors will fit with about 2mm to  
spare radially.

My 2  cents:
This topic has come at a very appropriate time.  You are forcing me to  
document my brake upgrade (with pictures).  Since I subscribe to the  compiled list 
and not the individual posts I will post this stuff on the other  Audi site 
and notify this list.  I just completed my "brake upgrade"  with adaptors from 
Germany on Boxster S brakes with Brembo rotors.  the  adaptors are cast parts 
impeccably done.  My setup fits under 16" Avus  wheels with about 5 mm to 
spare.  I developed my own brake lines from  factory Porsche parts.  Why did I do 
this - cause I think 4 pages of  legalese from BIRA is BS.  Plus it never 
responded to any of my  inquiries.
