    Hello,

    Here are some picturese of my PORSCHE BBK 6 piston monoblock with 2 pieace 370mm floating rotors on the front, and 355mm 2peace floating discs on the rear with the OEM callipers, origginally the callipers were yellow but I got them painted to red with the brembo sign. also had my silver Team dynamics 18" changed to gloss black to point out the brakes... had around 500miles done with the brakes and they brake like hell, the car stops imeadetlley without lossing brake power throuth the way, the braking bias is just perfect even dough I expected to be worse. :) lovin this mod... both rear and front pads are Ferodo DS2500...

    Nice but think your measurements are wrong, the standard discs are like 320mm arent they? dont you mean 370mm and not 270?

    Yes, the rear are standard S3 OEM callipers stripped down and painted in red... there is no need for stronger callipers on the rear...

    Thanks for all the positive comments... and the feedback up to now is INSANE !!1 just lovin the stoping power witch is far more agressive than stock. But I am going to Nurburgring next week for 5 days, and will see how the brakes cope up with that.. just got my brand new Michelin Sport Cup 225/40/18 ready for this trip... :)

    Hi,

    From what car did those 355mm rear dsics came from? You use stock S3 pads for those discs?

    Best regards.

    Seems as the creator of this thread has not been active for some time on here =( .
    Does anyone on here know what adapter brackets that where used to fit the calipers to the hub. The S3 hub do not allow for Porsche 18Z calipers to bolt on out of the box and no adapter brackets are sold commercially that I know of. So this had to be done specially for this set up. Any input is welcome as I have the 18Z calipers already but cannot fit them.
