Just curious, found 95B-615-124-J version which is already painted in red. (https://www.delawareporscheparts.co...per-95b615124j?c=bD0zJm49U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM=)

I couldn't find much pics, info, or if it's specific to the GTS/Turbo caliper.

Wondering if it's related to the 95B-615-124F in any way.

Could save some hassle of sending it out to get it powder coated in red.

It looks like the 6 piston version and I think it's for a larger disk, so you'll struggle to find a disk to fit the car.

I was considering this caliper early on, but if have to have a custom 2 piece disk setup created with mk6/7 hat and a 360 x 30 rotor.

I hope to do the same this weekend. Such a bummer too. They are local and I drove a bit to get them ASAP for the install.
Same with me. You were probably the person they brought up when I went because they said someone else came in to pick up/replace the same exact dust boots.

Finally got to go for a spin after bleeding the system three times. Unfortunately there seems to be a dead zone at the top of the pedal. I have the standard Golf/GSW master cylinder currently, but I don't believe this is the issue. It's likely caused by the "low drag" design of the Macan calipers. Maybe some ABS stops and a rebleed will help, but it seems unlikely.

I did not experience the dead zone with any of the following setups using the same master cylinder:
288 OEM / 272 OEM
312 OEM / 272 OEM
312 ProdigyWerks CR4 / 272 OEM
312 ProdigyWerks CR4 / 310 OEM
340 Neuspeed / 272 OEM
340 Neuspeed / 310 OEM

Everything else seems great! They look freakin' awesome; I love the color! A note for RSe05 fitment. 1/4oz wheel weights do not clear on the spoke side of the barrel. 1/8 might clear, but if the weights are mounted beyond the step in the barrel they will clear without issue. I have this same clearance problem with my Neuspeed 6 Pistons.

I've had great results with the RPV and RRG detailed in this thread: https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/inde...esidual-pressure-valves-and-seal-lube.376654/
No dead space and brake engagement happens almost as soon as I touch the pedal.

If you had 340 Neuspeed / 310 OEM, why would you move to this setup? It's kind of a cobbled together package. Do you still have your Neuspeed 340?

Have you had any issue with pads dragging after a period of time, like a few others have experienced?
To be honest, I've never checked for pad drag. What would be the best way to check?

My gas milage dropped by ~5mpg on the highway one day.

Turn off your radio, roll the windows down and drive next to a solid wall and listen for squeaks haha

You can also see shiny/glazed rings on the rotor where it's constantly touching. Mine is towards the outside.
My car squeaks pretty loud when going in reverse with light pressure on the brakes, but it's not consistent and seems to only happen when the brakes are cold.

I do see a shiny/glazed ring in the middle of the rear rotors, but I don't recall if that was there before or after I did this mod?

Gas mileage has been unchanged for me.
