Just got done installing it today. Probably took about an hour...

I used my stock calipers, 13k EBC greenstuff pads, and put the A8 rotors and TT carriers on.

Impressions:
- More pedal travel, but that could be because the rotors need to be seasoned to the pads.
- Since the pads are out farther (and have the same sweep area on the rotor) it bites harder under braking

Other than that I will probably give these a few hundred miles before I see what they're worth.

Cost for the carriers and hardware: $145
Cost for the rotors: $101

Not a bad upgrade for $246 - They really fill the rotor gap on my 16s nicely.

Did you flush and bleed the fluid? That could explain the pedal travel. It should be the same as stock since it is still stock.

Rotors don't get seasoned to the pads. Pads get bed to the rotors.

Didn't flush the fluid - I did that a few k ago. Maybe it's just a placebo effect?

I got the rotors from Autopartswarehouse and the carriers off ebay From this auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&viewitem=&item=280062756958) I offered him $145 - opps the carriers cost $155 total then...

ive got the ecs stage 2 v1 brake kit coming tomorrow im so excited. i was really set on doing the tt/a8 upgrade for only $289 or whatever from purems, and was just going to upgrade to boxster calipers down the line, but i came across a sweet deal on this kit instead. cant wait to get them installed!!

I have the 312mm upgrade on mine with Mintex all around. Pedal feel is very solid. Stopping is much smoother at tripple digit speeds and thats all I wanted. I have a motive bleeder coming in soon and have a set of SS lines.

After about 40 miles of driving there's definitely more dip to the front under hard braking. That tells me theres more power there to stop the car.
