    Im sure they can be made to fit, you will need some custom carriers at the very least

      Be aware that Audi had a problem with RS3 brakes and replaced all the early ones under warranty. Some Audi dealers let owners keep the old calipers and quite a few come up for sale now and again. I think the issue was noise rather than safety. There was a set for sale local to me and I did consider having a go getting them to fit my car but decided to go for a tried and tested upgrade instead.

          Depends what callipers they are. Those early 4 pot callipers and pads are designed for 370x30mm rotors.
          I wouldn’t mess about with kiddie’s 323s.

          As said early RS3 brakes were plagued with little problems, unless they are dirt cheap save your money and buy something better.

          The later 8 pots on the other hand are AFAIK the same as B7 RS4 and others - if so go for it.

          EDIT: If you need any brackets machining drop me a line
