Porsche 911 Brakes..

  1. Hi Guys..

    Does anyoone know if the brakes from a Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (996) will fit on to a S3..

    I ask because a friend of mine has a bodyshop, and has just replaced the whole front end on a smashed 911. So he has lots of bit lefts after replacing the it with new ones.. It had a complete new fron sub frame and suspension legs etc.. Part of it was new brakes even though there is nothing wrong with the old ones.

    He said i can have the brakes and discs for nothing if i wanted to put them on mine.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif But need to know if they will fit straight on to mine without too many mods. I still have standard wheels too, so will clearance be a problem??

    Thanks..

    Pal

    In principal the answer is yes. You would need new bells, new mounting brackets and you would need to ensure that the calipers will clear the inside of the wheel (so maybe some spacers).
