    brakes

    Hey folks,

    Do Porsche calipers (part numbers 996.351.421 and 996.351.422) fit the S3 no probs or are these the wrong ones to get. If they are ok what else is needed in order to upgrade my brakes....


    Cheers

    If they are boxster rear calipers then they are no good...

    brakes


    Hi folks,

    The chap selling the brake kit says the following, they are bright red in colour and i thought it was the dull black ones that were no good.

    Pair of genuine Porsche/Brembo brake calipers 1 pair (RH and LH)

    Porsche part numbers 996.351.421 and 996.351.422
    Fits Porsche 996,986,987 Carrera/Boxster
    Ideal upgrade for VW or BMW
    Complete with brake pads/pins/anti rattle shims and pad wear sensors.

    Cheers

    Mine were anodised black before I had them coated. All the info is in the thread Tuffty posted above. I used it to ensure I didn't buy the wrong callipers.
