Default VW BBK using Porsche Cayenne Calipers

This thread is for the discussion of Porsche caliper BBK.

We received constant inquires from VW & Audi communities for making light weight two piece rotors for this brake kit upgrade. Not only they shall fit correctly, but also be well performed, easy to install (only dust shield needs to be removed), yet at an affordable price.

Well, we have just worked out a solution to above, and here are some pictures that how RB two piece rotors fit:

Front view: RB two piece rotor/17Z Caliper


Top view: The rotor is perfectly centered between the caliper and pad pin bolts



Detail view: Shows how the brake pad nicely lines up with the rotor edge
:


So what you guys think. I can make a killer deal for this proto-type set to the first person who would post his interest here and PM me for a quote.

More quantity will be made upon per-orders.

We also like to offer our ET pads to go with them. The Touareg pad D#1007 (60mm) is to be used for better match with the disc width than Cayenne's D#1014 (65mm).

The installation requires only two M14x45mm bolts which will be included in the kit, but no calipers which are to be acquired by you.

So what is the pricing for this kit going to be? Is this sourcing our own calipers?

What kind of price are we talking and will this fit a MKVI GTI?

Thanks,
JM

I thought the whole reason for rb to make these rotors was to be a lot more competitive with pricing. It looks like you're more expensive than JHM.

Here is a good example of how you can build your own BBK:

http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...61&postcount=2

A little bit research to find the components/parts:
I rebuilt my Brembo F40 calipers with Stoptech seals and boots. They are a direct fit. The P/N of the F40 caliper is actually 20.4862.05/06 for trailing-mount calipers. The F40 uses 44/38mm pistons (F50 uses 44/40mm pistons)
http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...83&postcount=4

Multi parts & Multi soucing:
Thanks! It's been holding up fine.. 20k miles and 2 events.. I'm on a custom DIY frankenstein setup using F40 front/Porsche 996 rear calipers and E46M3 CSL 345x28mm/328x20mm F/R rotors.. not a fan of the holey rotors but they are relatively cheap and available

I got the calipers on ebay for about $500 for the F40, $300 for the 996 rear calipers.. seals and boots rebuild kit $200, set of 4 new CSL rotors for $700 plus $500 for banjo fittings, lines, Hawk pads.. I machined the brackets myself..
Conclusion:
..didn't save as much money as I thought I could.. in hindsight for the time and effort I should've just gotten a kit LOL ...but I had fun I guess
The other option is considering RB's BBK. Single source from a brake professional company... plug and play.

Since the OE 2-piece was cancelled for the Mk4 R, this is definitely interesting in its place. Is the 345mm rotor kit capable of fitting the Mk4 R32? Thanks!

No, it's not cancelled. They are still available for ordering. There could be a pad overhung on inner edge, but it's not uncommon for brake modification and acceptable from our experience in dealing with various motorsports communities for years, although someone may find it unacceptable from cosmetic (can only notice during installation) standpoint, but since we are a performance brake company so the two piece rotors did meet our approval for release from "performance improvement" stand point.

Anyone who is tracking his R32 may contact us for arranging a track test on these rotors for a testimonial.

No it only fits MK5, not MK4.

So these are the same rotors we were trying to get made in this thread?
http://forums.racingbrake.com/showth...=2711#post2711
If so, that sucks because I would've ordered them MONTHS ago!

They are not the same. The other one is for stock replacement and this one here is for Cayenne caliper kit.

The thread tile represents different brake parts.

Oh, no no I meant the ones I quoted from your post #16 in comparison to the ones I linked in post #17. But if you're saying they're the same then of course I believe you! OK, I'll stop derailing this thread now. :P

Will the 345mm rings at least work with the mk4 r32 hats?
