So I'm a little bored and these just came in the mail, figured I might as well throw up a few pics(from my blackberry, real camera is MIA...). It is 034 rear BBK using 300x22 rotors and b5 s4 calipers. I already have boxster calipers up front so I'm hoping these are a nice addition to the rear. I'm going to NHMS june 2nd/3rd for a 2 day track school so I'm really hoping they help. The larger vented rotors should improve breaking greatly. I will get some real pictures when they are installed tomorrow or friday.

Yeah thats what happens when you are too lazy to clamp things down in a drill press and it catches a knot in the wood...

Wow, those are large for rear brakes. Do you need a larger master cylinder to accomodate both the Boxster fronts and S4 rears?

The thought occurred to me but I've done as much reading as I can find and didn't see any mention of replacing it so I'm hoping it should be ok. If not I guess I'll have to upgrade :( I'm hoping the s4 piston isn't that much larger than stock so that it causes problems but I could be wrong.

I'm also hoping this helps with the brake bias, right now the fronts are 312 and rears are stock 245.... stock is 288 and 245 so 312 and 300 should even things out a little.

The Boxster brakes shouldn't be much larger than the S4 fronts, and the S4 uses the same master cylinder, If I recall correctly. You can try inquiring at 034... they are surely not running stock brakes on their VR6 build A4! Ask them what they use.
