I picked up a set of Viper calipers. I'm hoping those will work. They seem much easier to find than the jag calipers.

I wouldn't recommended it but, like I said, just run Stage 3 w/o the parking for a while if you want to. Once you sourced the parking calipers, pop them in. It's nice if you can have it done once, but you can do it in stages too.

I'd keep an eye out for them, but we don't know if they will work yet. I figured I'd give a shot, and see if John can make them work w/ his mechanical engineering magic! Keeping fingers crossed because these should be much easier to find.

Yeah, let's hope it works out. Open up the parking calipers option for Stage 3 kit a bit.

Im interested in the stage 3, but would it be possible to get the rear rotors in 5x100 since i have a MK4R32. Cheers J

That would be my next project if there's enough interests. From first look at the knuckle I'll say that the MK4 rear is entirely different apart from being a 5X100 bolt pattern. My MKV bracket will not fit.

If this question has been answered, just let me know... but would it be plausible to use these 4 piston calipers as an upgrade for the front of our cars? I know the Cobalt SS uses 4 piston Brembos that are stellar.

Yes the question has been asked before and there's a much simpler and much cheaper way to upgrade our cars into 4 pots. 2008 V6 Touareg has a pair of four pots front (I don't think it's progressive though) which fits exactly into GTI mounting eyelets. All you need is a set of 330mm rotors that work.

There's also 6 pots (17Z) Touareg calipers work w/ 330mm rotors.

Rear kit is a piece of art!!

I spent an hour reading that linked thread for the front. Just to clarify, I need:

- 18Z/L stamped Cayenne V8 calipers
- 350mm GL450 rotors
- Cayenne V6 pads
- Stoptech lines
- hardware

-OR-

- 17Z/L stamped Cayenne V6/Touareg calipers
- 330mm ML350 rotors
- Cayenne V6 pads
- Stoptech lines
- hardware

I can be very sure about the 18Z (L/R) as what you listed is correct. But as of right now I have not seeing anyone running the 17Z (L/R) w/ ML350 rotors. So I reserve my judgment/verification of those.
