    epic colour mate :D love it totally different. but i prefer the rs logo but then again they are brembos so no issue there.
    i've was thinking doing my calipers is some different colour but when they arrived they were spotless so left the that way.

    Easy mate ! Everything just goes ! I would recommend dag hose supplies for some braided lines tho ! Saves you bending old brake lines only cost me £40 delivered and they put the correct angles, length and connections :)

    Oh yeah, get them hot round a track and they poo visible uneven pad deposits all over the disc giving horrendous brake judder.

    Thanks mate, glad to hear it. I've ordered hel rs3 braided brake line so hopefully they will do the trick. Also a bit worried about my wheels fitting, 19x8.5 et50. Time will tell...

    Keep up the good work and thanks for the info...

    depends on the spokes design of the wheels.
    here's a little guide. hope it helps..

    They look great - love the caliper colour too.

    How's the difference in braking?

    I'm very surprised you are running them on standard wheels. I'm running the AP racing discs so 362mm and within three weeks a stone lodged itself between the calipers and alloy and wrote that wheel off. Good excuse to upgrade wheels as well :)

    There is plenty of space between the calliper and the spokes, and so little space between the calliper and the inside of the wheel, I don't think a stone could even get in there, maybe a grain of sand lol.

    Could be for sale if anyone is interested. They fit but are a tad too close to my wheel for my liking and I'm not willing to change my wheels! Need to be running pro 1.2's ch's or 19" ideally. Covered 200 miles max ! As you can see they look the nuts !

    If they're not rubbing then there's no problem , even if it did, a minor shave off the caliper, sorts.

    To have it close maxing out your brake size is heroic.

    Keep 'em.
