    These will fit behind any OEM wheel.

    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    Great idea Marco, this is my personal favorite as the Porsche calipers are a direct bolt on with no adapters needed, plus they come in blue , details are as follows;

    ECS - Front Big Brake Kit - Stage 5 - 2-Piece Cross-Drilled & Slotted Rotors (352x32), Six-piston Blue Porsche Cayenne caliper, caliper carrier, pads, two-piece rotors, exact-fit stainless steel lines, and hardware.

    a bit of a noob question but in terms of installing BBKs, can my experienced current VW mechanic (service technician for a car dealership) do this for me?

    Hi Bernie,

    Yes, commonly any euro mechanic knows how to do it, even some tyre places like Bob-Jane, etc do, but I won't trust my car to them, so, if your mechanic is familiar with the euro scene that's the go
