    Is the ABS test something you do via VAG-Com? I've got the tool but I don't know if I have a working Windows laptop any more.
    yes via VCDS. I think Carista may allow it. Be worthwhile to check on that in your situation. If you run the reservoir dry or get bubbles up top you have to do this.

    I've gotten lucky the past few caliper changes I've done by literally having the new caliper sitting right next to the old one ready to hot swap over. I keep the reservoir full. I hot swap the line over to the new one (or hot swap the new line over to the old one if you are replacing the lines) and then I bleed that caliper right there just a bit making sure I go back up top to check that too much fluid isnt draining out of the reservoir. I'll top that off if it starts going low.

    I do that with each caliper and only then do I go around and do some very careful bleeding making sure to keep topping off. I end up using maybe 1/2 liter more this way by continuously topping off but it has saved me from having to bleed more than once every time now. This saves you tremendously in time and frustration. This is gravity bleeding the entire time. I've never done a power bleed at all. This is also just me pumping the pedal and opening and closing the bleed screws. I'm VERY CAREFUL to pump the pedal SLOWLY and not all the way to the floor. If you do it right you can get away with it but once you get air back up into the system you are in for a full bleed (if not a few) with abs cycling.

    I kinda want to bite the bullet on a red set, # 95B-615-123-E The last letter being the only difference, I have no reason to believe it wouldn't be the same caliper, but painted red. Do you guys think it could be an other caliper type that wouldn't fit?
    I suspect that part number with the "E" suffix is for the Turbo/GTS calipers- which are a different six piston caliper and fit a larger 360mm disc.

    Reason being, there's no red caliper option for the base Macan, which is the only model these "Q5" Brembos come on, while red calipers come equipped only on the Turbo and GTS models (without PCCB)

    Wow, it would be very confusing if it is exactly the same part # with just the last letter being different for a 4pot vs 6pot caliper I am currently exchanging emails with a Porsche dealer here in Quebec about this. I asked them what all the variants actually are ! Hopefully, they'll have an answer for me !

    Edit : Actually you might be right.. I cannot find a base macan for sale that has anything than the matte black 4pot calipers

    Is it possible to keep the stock rotors and swap in new calipers and pads? I only have 17k miles on the odometer so plenty of rotor life left.

    Might want to go ahead and check the rotors while you've got the car this far apart. I did my first pad change around 20k miles and did the rotors at the same time.

    [as an aside, I installed ECS Geomet with slots and then went to the Apikol 2-piece at around 50k miles on the odo. Just had the Apikol's turned (only the passenger side was warped) and I'm hoping I get another 60k+ miles out of them before a re-ring job. I'm very happy with the life of the Apikol rotors as quite a bit of the life of those rotors was dealing with Atlanta traffic.]

    I suspect that someone has figured out that something is up.

    Finally found my old Dell only to remember that it has Vista it and I couldn't get the Ross-Tech VCDS to actually load.

    People have already selling these exact Porsche calipers for $650+ shipping without powder coating. Nothing like taking advantage of a fellow forum member!

    All right, all right, all right, all right, all right! I fought with Vista for awhile but I think VCDS is finally installed. Supposed to be terrible weather here tomorrow so I might have to clear some things out of the garage to make room to work.

    Are they these? The Audi OEM part is more expensive than the Porsche OEM part. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-ecs-part...8r0615108ekt3/

    I believe the dealer price on the Q5 calipers is more than $650 a pair - they are silver/grey. If you get the Porsche part - which is powder coated black - it's under $500/pair. So, if they're selling the former, I'm missing your point.

    My point is, an Audizine member buying stock from various sources at a lower price and then selling them on the forums for a higher price, itís annoying and uncalled for.

    They were the OEM Porsche calipers, and the ad had pictures that were in this thread.

    Anything that fits a cts v, sti ect will fit these calipers people. Search around to find your pad options and what years of above cars run these calipers.

    I don't think they are powder coated, they look to be anodized. Never the less, the Porsche part has a coating, the Audi part doesn't.

    I don't care about dust. Sure less might be nice, but it's not a driving factor. I've seen a wide range of opinions on Akebono - including my very trusted shop that recommends them.

    So what are y'all running for pads and rotors with these calipers?

    I had the Hawk 5.0 pads front and rear before the caliper swap. The fronts were pretty worn out but the backs were in good shape. So I got the 5.0 pad for these calipers. There are probably better options out there and I might explore some once spring hits. I'm really looking forward to the ease with which front pads can be changed with these calipers.

    Swapping front pads is a matter of minutes with fixed calipers !!

    I was trying to explain this to my wife. I finally said, "like le Mans," but I'll wait until they cool off so I don't have to use pliers. She got it.

    Holy air in the lines, Batman.

    ETA: Manually bled the calipers twice now. Much firmer but I still think there's some air in there. Wife has earned some serious wife-points for pumping the pedal with a new born in her arms.

    Power bleeder and running the ABS test are your friend.

    Yup.

    Power bleeder arrives tomorrow.

    I love the brakes already and itíll be even better once bled.
