    Mind taking some stock vs Q5/Macan caliper pic with the wheels off? Lol

    For those that have upgraded to the Q5/Macan front calipers and retained the OEM rear brakes, what rear brake pad are you using to balance out any front bias? Or is that much bias change at all?

    The Q5 rear calipers are the same as a S4!

    After reading this thread I decided to go with the Macan Calipers, Stainless Lines and will be doing a full fluid flush. My question is: Do I need bigger Rotors to be able to use this Calipers or do the OEM size calipers will be fine with the Calipers?

    Took me two times but it may have been the pads too. I was unhappy with the cheap pagid/hellas and the brembo pads are much better

    Did two rounds of bleeding, for good measure, all at once. Did not get any air the second time. Using the Q5 Brembo pads that Mike mentioned. The pedal is definitely lower, maybe it was really high before? I say that because in two days of driving Iím now used to it. Very linear progression, tons of braking power, and confidence. I havenít engaged ABS yet and probably wonít unless itís truly an emergency or the surface lacks traction.
