Default Rotorlab.com, anyone have their BBK?

Looks like a great deal. Anyone buy one of their kits? Would love to hear personal experience.

Thanks,
Travis

Me too, I am looking at the z18 kit for the GTI as well as an ECS big rotor kit for the rear.

The callipers should be great anyway! Seems like they have a good product so I am just about to order them.

I have blue calipers on the Beetle but would get red for the GTi. The GTI is black pearl.

Got this off VWVortex....

I wonder is I'll need a master cylinder upgrade...

"Sorry I don’t but with rotors that size I’m guessing they are 6-piston calipers... in case you are not aware it’s highly likely they will max out your master brake cylinder and you may have suffering perfornance due to this. No VW I’m aware of has a MBC suitable for 6-piston and up without doing a TTRS MBC swap[/I][/I]

When I put the 6 piston front 4 piston rears in the Beetle, we didn't change the master cylinder. Works great. I think the volume of fluid is distributed similarly to the OE situation.

Try contacting the Rotorlab guys and ask their opinion as they don't mention issues with the master cylinder on their website.

They are great! A bit stiff but we have turned up the settings. I have V3 rear shocks to help with the trailer bounce.

Overall, I like them but they are stiff and bouncy if you set them up the way I did.

Right! Or the blue would too. Just don't know if it would be too loud.

Great link/info. I was interested in knowing which VAG family of vehicles could share brake components, ie: calipers/caliper stands/rotors, between the entire family including Porsche.
