I think they will fit all models..mine are on an S

You need an aftermarket rim of 17''+ must be non runflats!

And 6mm or 15mm spacers to clear the calipers.

Thats all and they are awsome BTW

I have a little review on hear , just search for porsche brakes

ooops the link is already above!!!!!!!!!

What are the carriers on the Porsche BBK calipers. I'm looking at doing the conversion myself, and can get the Porsche calipers, and also get the discs made up, but there doesn't seem to be much info on how the calipers are actually fixed.. or am I being stupid?
