    I have the Fabless kit with Wilwood ebrake spot calipers. THEY SUCK! I know others that have the kit as well and think the same thing. They are not good for the weight of the B5. If you had a stripped down and lightened B5 sure, go for it you might have better success. Overall though they do not make me feel secured on a slope. I've readjusted over and over and its either not enough or I feel like I'm stretching cable to make it feel tight. Its probably part of the reason fabless quit making the kit....The fabbed parts are great though, but it utilizes the wrong ebrake caliper for our vehicles....

    Any idea if I can run a set of these on a B7 A4? Im assuming yes, because literally everything else works, but I need to know.

    If people want, I can work out a good deal on redrilling rotors for everyone
    I will have all specific part numbers before the kits are ready, I've just been slammed here at my shop
    Youll want to use the Euro B8 S4/S5 330mm rotors. Ill see what I can find, but AKMotorsports has the Brembo Part numbers listed on their site.

    I'm told the spindles are different but I've gotten alot of people asking for b6 b7 brackets. I'll pick up a rear spindle and see what i can do but it has to wait till the b5 ones are done.

    Thanks. Let me know how you progress. Id be interested in two sets (one set doesnt need parking brake provisions, just the bracket).

    Thanks.
