Correct.

Oh many have said the Porka rear brakes from a Boxster S are utter useless....discuss :)

do any of the evo brembo's fit the mk4

I'm guessing not as they're 4wd and the mk4 isn't?

They are indeed they are aparently 'ok' brakes a lot of the guys on seatcupra.net are running uprated pads and standards ones are sh!te.. and uprated hoses and disks.. DS2500 pads seems to be highest rated..

Bob the porsches are prices but they dont wear out so fast as the all uprated can even get ceramic pads  :cool: and they much better over standard brakes.. plus im gona need them soon

Coxster S rears are sh!te because the pistons are tiny compared to the coxster s fronts.. from what ive read though any porsche callipers can be made to fit all you need is the adaptors and hoses..

u do know if u use a boxser S FRONT with a 312mm disc u wll about 5 mm of pad over hang which will eventually which forms a ridge on the pad and can break off in chunks when hot besides that its a MOT fail you need a 330 disc

get the disc from a mg zt 2.5 v6 and then u need them redrilled at 5 x 100 google crn products they do it including redrilling for 120

how big are the pistons on the Boxster S front calipers and rear calipers? Ive seen alot of people using the 3.2 S rear calipers with no issues.

Cheers for that i have heard about the overhang and read threads on ukmkiv's and none of them have had MOT fail as someone bought it up in a thread i will take my chances.. I cant afford the cost of replacint 330 discs !!
