The install went smoothly. It needed two small spacers between the caliper and the bracket to center the rotor up in the caliper. The installed picture is on an OEM AP2V2 wheel that is powder coated.

There is only 8mm clearance between the caliper and the inner surface of the OEM spokes.

CORRECTION

Caliper clearance is 5mm on [email protected] front OEM wheel.

Caliper clearance is 8mm on AP2V1 rear wheel bored and front mounted for square wheel setup.

Looks good - do the V2 wheels have more spoke clearance than the V1 wheels ? Do your V1 wheels fit as well ?

I see you have brake ducts lurking - any pics of the install ?

Not yet having finished the bedding process, the full-on braking is impressive but the pedal feels a bit softer and travels a bit further but not enough to negatively impact heal-toe technique.

I do not have V1 front wheels for OEM fitment testing. Please see my correction, above, for current clearance notes.

Yes, they are all in one of my public albums at www.S2KCA.com
You must sort the album by file name using controls at the bottom of the album to see the proper sequence of the project.

sorry to bump up this old post but any updates on this BBK?

i have tarox pads on my oem disc, its, a very aggressive pad compound which I like as it never fades, but destroys the oem disc. So im thinking of a bbk..

Thanks

I'm still happy with them. I'm currently running Ferodo DS3000 brake pads on them. They have a little more bite than the Tarox Compitizione pads. I have tried EBC Yellow to reduce the dust but did not like them.

BTW - I have the 6-pot Tarox, not the 10-pot.

AND, to use other makes of brake pads, you need to modify them. Any brake pad that fits the front of the Mercedes Benx G550 will work. You must then cut off the lower wing tabs and the top guide blip on each pad. They will then fit exactly, maybe even better, than the Tarox. Here is the diagram that I made of the Ferodo modification. EBC and all the rest are the same mod.
