Thanks a lot!
I read through all of the first 40 pages and gave up.
so https://racingbrake.com/c7-41bs is no longer the correct ones
https://racingbrake.com/db-45ht is the boot we should use, and what about seals? Thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot!
I’ve had them on a GSW 4Mo with the 345mm rotors for about 7500mi now. Stock Golf MC. Dead initial pedal travel and squishy feel is real. They’re fine for a bling street setup, maybe I still have some air in my lines. Interested to see @Raguvian’s insights after he installs with the Castrol red rubber grease, that’s my next move.
Do owners of other BBKs like neuspeed or stop tech have the same pedal problem?Yup, did 2/3 of the recommended ones on the first post (hydraulic brake assist, brake boost). I can't say I felt a huge difference. I'm not sure the master cylinder size makes that much of a difference, I've read about Audi & Macan drivers complaining about the same pedal issues.
Yes and no, by that I mean that some other BBK's have reported the same issue however, not with the ST40 calipers. The ST40 calipers piston displacement is almost 25% smaller than even the stock calipers, and that allows them to have a very firm high pedal. If you grease the piston seals with these Macan/Q5 calipers it will give you a very similar pedal height and feel to the stock calipers. But if you really want to go next level, you can drastically improve pedal height and firmness by greasing the seals AND adding inline RPV's to the front calipers.Do owners of other BBKs like neuspeed or stop tech have the same pedal problem?
Sounds great! What is an RPV and how long does the greased effects last?If you are already greasing the seals, the RPV's cost around $100 all in and can be easily installed/removed, ya know just incase this is all some bizarre plot on my part to waste your time and money.
Okay, stepping off my soap box, again.

@emichel6888 has a thread going for it. I'm not sure if anyone else has completed his full setup but I have it sitting on my counter waiting to be installed. I'm currently trying to figure out my brake line situation as I'd like to upgrade the rear lines as well. The custom Techna-fit ones aren't stainless fittings
