HPS 5.0, didn't pick a track pad yet.
Discovered OEM Denver wheels fit with a 10mm spacer. These are massive.
Edit, also discovered that Neuspeed RSe12's clear by like 2-3mm
Nothing needs removed from the cast steel or aluminum (Passat) lower control arms. The stamped ones will gouge the surface at full lock.
You need 12.5mm spacers with denver/huffs/detroit wheels for the 17z calipers. I doubt the mk7 austins will clear with only 5mm.
The wheel bearing will have some play and your wheel may flex, when I was looking at BBK's the manuals for a few said that 3mm clearance was the absolute minimum clearance.
You are still a bit tucked with them so 15mm spacers may get you moar flush. I've been able to push Denver's out pretty far and not eat my fenders, but I am not low enough for stance nation.
It is posible to use a 355mm rotor in a 17z caliper?So for anybody looking to setup Cayenne/Touareg/Q7 6 piston Brembo caliper on the front of your MKV using 1 piece rotors:
1: 6 Piston Brembo calipers off of a Porsche Cayenne, VW Touareg, or Audi Q7.
-There are two types of calipers 17z for 330mm rotors and 17" wheels, and 18z for 350mm rotors and 18" wheels.
-You also have to consider spoke clearance as the large calipers stick outward much farther and can contact your spokes.
2: Rotors off of a 2008 Mercedes-Benz ML350 or 2008 Mercedes Benz GL450
-2008 ML350 rotor specs, these are the rotors to use with 17z calipers
-2008 GL 450 rotor specs, these are the rotors to use with 18z calipers.
3: Caliper mounting hardware from JHM Motorsports, or 5/8" x .035" Stainless tubing as a reducer and 14mm Shouldered Bolts and nuts.
4: 67mm - 65mm metal hub centric rings.
-These will need to be shortened as not to stick out past the face of the rotor and interfere with mounting the wheels.
5: 2004 VW MkIV .:R32 brake lines.
-Direct fit to MkV brake line and 17z-18z Calipers
The Calipers bolt directly to the stock spindle with the hardware kit from JHM. I made my own hardware using 5/8" .035 stainless tubing as a sleeve and hardened shouldered 14mm bolts and locking nuts You will need to grind some material off the very bottom of the caliper and a small spot on the control arm where the bottom of the caliper comes in contact with the control arm at full lock, it is a very minor snag that is a non issue.
Rotors are a perfect fit aside from the slightly too large center bore and the rotor hold down doesn't fit.
You use pads for the calipers you have make sure they specify 330mm for the 17z and 350mm for the 18z as they are different.
I also chose not to use the brake pad warning light and did not buy pads equipped with the wiring for them, you can turn the light off with Vag-Com or do what I did and pack aluminum foil into the connector on your can and tape it up with electrical tape.
