No, Xolaque made them years back - 2009ish.

Brake balance feels pretty even to me - very noticable improvement over stock. I'm on the OEM booster - seems more than fine for daily and emergency situations. I want to do the booster upgrade eventually (TT, I think), but the car is fine without it so I'm not in a rush. Whenever I find a good used one I'll do it.

I've had some near crashes (Vancouver drivers, ugh!) and these have performed exceptionally. Stops fast.

Originally I was going to go label-less on the calipers (used repainted), but I got a deal I couldn't pass up on new ones from a dealer... so I just left them as-is.

It clears the calipers by about 2mm. I currently have 5mm spacers on the rear but will try 8mm as well. Spacers larger than 8mm caused the wheels to hit the fender when encountering larger bumps.

Also as an aside, one does not require longer studs. You may choose to use longer Porsche 19mm wheel bolts that come in longer lengths and are black.

After installing my 18z calipers I measured and made a template. These measurements may come in handy for some of you.

No issues of rubbing the fenders with 10mm? I was thinking of using 12mm all round
