Got the brakes installed today on my '01 A4 1.8t quattro avant --
Porsche 996 Carrera calipers over S4 rotors front, S4 calipers
over A8 rotors rear. EBC rotors and Hawk HPS pads, StopTech
Same front calipers I ran on my '95.5 S6 avant.
BIRA System 2 brackets.
All I can say is "OWMIGAWD" does this thing stop!
These aren't brakes...they're anchors. Step on the pedal and the
car stops NOW!
I didn't measure stopping distance before, and I won't now, but I
can say for sure that stopping distances have been substantially
Feel is good, threshhold braking feels great, and I'm as happy as
a pig in $hit.
I don't remember such a substantial difference in stopping power
when I upgraded my S6. I suspect that the lighter weight of the A4
factors in here.
Clearance over 17" OZ SLs is fine.
Pics to come.
