Default Cayenne 17Z and 18Z caliper kits for VW

Audi/VW enthusiasts requested that RB also supply the calipers with the kits to save their trouble in sourcing themselves.

We are pleased to announce that the complete brake kits (including 17Z or 18Z calipers) are now available for order.
17Z Kit: http://www.racingbrake.com/Big-Brake...s-p/2119-k.htm

18Z Kit: http://www.racingbrake.com/Big-Brake...s-p/2212-k.htm
Due to we have to order these calipers form VW dealers so the availability is limited with about 1-2 weeks leadtime, so any orders received will be shipped on first come first serve basis.

Wait no more for this affordable (less than $1,900), easy to install kit exclusively offered by RB.

Curious to know about your 18z front setup. I see it listed as being a 348x30mm disc. Are the caliper pistons not over extended when the discs wear down since they were designed on a 34mm wide rotor? What are your min. spec before discard on these discs? I'm looking at ditching the heavy single piece MBZ GL450 rotors I am currently using which would be about a 9lb difference per side! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

RB rotor for 18Z setup is 348x32mm. Minimum thickness is 31mm but RB rotors are much harder than OE and other aftermarket options so rarely ever wear down to that thickness. These rotors typically last the life of the car when used only for street driving. For track use they would need to be replaced when stress cracks develop across the rotor face.
