    Porsche Panamera brake kit

    Hi All

    I have an option to purchase a brake kit from a Panemera. 6 pot fronts, 4 pot rears.

    Few questions though.
    The original rotors were 360/330

    Would you say a 356 rotor would be ok as well?
    Whats the best place to get brackets made up?
    Would you recommend changing the brake cylinders? If so to which ones?

    Considering its just the calipers I'll be getting, anything other than the lines, brackets and rotors I will need?

    Any potential issues you see with this setup or perhaps I've missed something obvious as in it just wont work. Any input is always appreciated Porsche Panamera brake kit

    Cheers Porsche Panamera brake kit

    That's a good point , I will do a test fitment of my current wheels on a big brake kit car to check fitment first and before I part with my shillings.

    hmm, I came across this post, http://www.driftworks.com/forum/part...ml#post2566182

    Seems to be running 18's with a 356mm disc. I know its on a 14, but I would have thought there to be not much in the difference in the brakes on a 15. I'm unsure of offsets etc so am going to hold fast for a while until I can be sure and test myself first.

    I'm running 355mm discs (370z) with Brembo F50 brembo caliper under a 18" volk racing TE37, fair amount of clearance still as well. clearance will depend a lot on wheel design.

    not sure on the piston sizes on the 6pot from the panamera but need to check the bias ratio see if it still suits the car and also the mount of fluid displacement needed, don't want to end up with an epically long pedal ! what master cylinder are you running at the minute?

    Rears are more problematic if you can have converted to under drum hand brake, mainly as disc options are limited unless you custom, if you stick with S15 hand brake set up style you will need to run a separate caliper for the hand brake.

    radial to lug mount cailper brackets are easy enough to have manufactured.
