    Porsche Calipers Finally Fitted

    Eventually got round to fitting the calipers yesterday. Took almost all day, but worth it in the end.

    This is what they looked liked before:




    This is how they look now after a clean:








    Next is for braided lines + 5.1 fluid.
    Put on new Toyo T1Rs today (4 for 300 ). The old ones will be kept for track use as they've worn a little on the inside edge.

    The wheels will stay as they are for the winter, then either be refurbed and painted black or dark grey, something like this:


    These are MTMs but you get what I mean from the colour:


    Or will be replaced with Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 in the same colours like this (although this is more silver, you see what I mean):



    All in all very happy, nut am still bedding in the pads so taking things easy. The owner of the OEM brakes I've just taken off will be very happy as they're almost new discs he's getting. The new owner is from here but Mum's the word (unless he's already mentioned it...)

    Off to Surry Rolling Road next Saturday along with about 25 other RS's from the SRS Forum, so should be fun

    Yes a Cayenne Turbo S. But they're essentially 'just' a Brembo 6-piston caliper.

    Most B5 RS4 owners upgrade to the B7 RS4 or C5 RS6 setup. Bigger discs and 8-piston calipers, but generally alot more expensive.

    This mod cost c400 for the discs and c450 for the calipers c/w pads + a further 50 to get the calipers machined down (offsets are not the same for the discs).

    The B7 or C5 upgrades are generally 1200-1500...

    No. Quite like the silver. Red's been done to death.

    Maybe a bright blue ?

    Am keen on bklack/dark grey wheels at some point so need to bear that in mind. Suggestions?

    Yeah.
    Colour obviously needs to work with silver car/silver wheels. Also needs to go with dark grey/bklack wheels too.

    Silver works.

    How about the flourescent pink jobbies, that Rocko (?) had ??! I mention the bright blue, as you can get the same colour silicon hoses...

    Silver's fine, so will keep with that me thinks.

    Cheers for the comments though. See you for a ride next week lostbok!!

    They look Fantatstic Stoaksey.
    Leave them Silver because when you get your darker rims on, they'll look just right mate.

    Good point Juss - Silver will look pretty sweet behind dark rims... or a powder blue....

    freakin huge!!! Very nice, i like the silver color myself and agree that they will look sweet with the different color rims. Nothing like a huge set of calipers that put you thru the windshield....What pads are you running?

    OEM Cayenne's for now. Have about 80% life in them. So will keep them until I need some more and then maybe get some Performance Friction ones...

    thats a great mod, looks better than B7 brakes and looks like a better fit too. I'll have bought them off you in a shot but one of my turbos may have died :-(

    1998 will be a B5, so maybe better asking in the B5 forum, but then so is Stoaksey's and he hangs around here all the time

    Cough cough...
    Did someone call?!



    B5 will be fine up front, but need 18" wheels. Dunno about rears. Probably too big.
    OEM rears are 312mm. Some guys are putting 340mm on the rear...?
