Just wanted to see if someone can confirm. I'm putting these on my R (looks only), and I recently put on new pads/rotors. I can just keep my 340mm rotors and buy the calipers, lines and z26 pads? I don't care for the wear sensor, it's bypassed.

I’m having trouble coding the hydraulic brake assist off and changing the brake booster value. I have OBDELEVEN, when I’m in the adaptions for module 3 ‘brakes’ I set to not active enter a valid security code. It’s gives me a successful tick but the asks me for a new code, over and over again. Without making the change. Anyone else experienced this?
mice tried updates, reboots, bonnet up, everything
Help please

It means you have the wrong code for your car.

I’ve made a video showing the odd thing that’s happening to me on my OBDELEVEN. Can someone please watch this and tell me if I’m getting something wrong? The cars ignition is on and the hood is open. There are also no current fault codes

That doesn't look like my obd11 on android, but when I used the wrong code, it does look like it works, but brings up the security code entry again. Also, if you enter the wrong code a few times, it takes 15 minutes before it'll work correctly again.

Saw this in a Facebook ad and it seems that cayenne 6 pistons also work and they are also 340mm?

View attachment 223858

It looks like the new Macan GTS comes standard with 6 piston Brembos with 360 x 36 millimeters discs at the front. The issue would be finding a rotor that would work with our cars, even if the Calipers themselves fit. You could maybe find a mk6 or mk7 specific aluminum hat and see if they that a 360 x 36 rotor ring that's compatible.

Interesting idea.

Is it likely that an 18inch wheel barrel would not clear the top of the caliper?
Got a set of 18x8.5 et 45 Rotiform las-r wheels, printed out the template in the first post.
I was concerned about the caliper hitting the front of the wheel but was not expecting clearing the barrel to be an issue.

Am I doing something wrong? I made sure to center it when doing actual measurements to the hub (its off a bit in the pic)

interesting....those brotiforms look to have like a stepped "interior lip", it may very well touch.

Is the caliper rebuild kit only for those that are powdercoating the calipers? I just realized that is the one part I didn't order yet.

I power coated and reused all the factory parts/ seals. I did not need a rebuild kit. Just be careful.

If your name is Edward Scissor Hands Arcadia, you might need the rebuild kit.
