ECS are good guys.  Make sure you know what you're doing for the 5 bolt
swap; I'm pretty sure the fitment varies from the S2 to the big cars
(100/200/urS4/S6).  Think the hub thickness may be different, and with a
fixed caliper, that's pretty critical to center the caliper on the

Thanks for the input i was looking at the ECS website and i think ill
give them a call this afternoon. There somewhat local to me which is
nice too.
The wiring is going well so far on the car. The engine side of the
harness is close to completion next is the interior part of the harness
and the start up :) Looking forward to driving the coupe again after
driving the Avants for two years.

My coupe has the S2 5-bolt hubs.  I used the RS2 brackets to mount my
2000 Porsche Carrera calipers, over euro 314x30 A8 rotors.  Barely fits
in my 16"
urS4 5-spoke wheels; really more brakes than you need.  You should also
change the brake proportioning valve to fix the bias if you add
bigger/different brakes.

I'm in Massachusetts; you're welcome to see the car/test fit wheels.
