    Hi everyone, buying myself some 6 pots this week need to know some info

    i have a 2008 8p s3 with standard 18" wheels. I read that Porsche cayenne z18 brake calipers bolt right on. And I can then run GL450 discs (350mm). Can anyone confirm this, do I need adapters and spacers? Looking for the simplest answer so I know what I need to buy in order to make these fit. Cheers.

    I've dropped N8 a message asking the same question. I read about the z18 and gl450 discs on another post. Guy said they bolt straight on. Just want to 100% check everything before I buy the calipers, discs and pads. Get them powder coated and fit out they don't fit lol. S

    Good idea.....swapping them out is a big enough job without finding that they don't fit.

    Best of luck.

    Yeah hopefully the offset etc is all okay. My friend an rs4 and managed to get z18 brembos under his 18s. Last thing I want is start buying wheels etc. Going to be an expensive month lol. Will keep the post updated with my findings.

    I know what you mean......last year we fitted mine with wider rims,and AMD had the devil's own job getting them under the car,and then having to skim the VWRacing brake kit bellhousings(which incorporate a 10mm spacer) to get the brakes to clear.

    Money...money....money.
