    17z on C5 S6

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi

    I have a set of 17z calipers, mounting hardware & lines and would like to use on my S6. I know that 18z will work however I rather the 17z option. Upon doing a little research I did find that the 2005 Volvo V70R Front Rotor should work if I machine off 2.5mm from caliper mounting surface?

    Just confirming is anyone has done this and worked?

    Thanks

    Mercedes C230 discs also work. The center hub diameter is the same, and all you would need to drill out each of the bolt holes to 14.1 mm from 12 mm.

    This page has some good information as well.

    I just used the c230 rotors. He is correct the stud holes need to be drilled out to 14mm and the hub hole does need to be burred out a hair bit. I suggest doing in small increments and test fitting it. Not bad at all.

    I believe none of those rotor options will work with the widebody hub offset. I remember someone else having this issue with their S6.

    I had found this response which says that the stock discs will work without modification (I cannot verify how true or not that is):

    If you have a V8(A6 4.2/S6), the 17z's will go on without any modification.

    Hi to20vt

    Here is all my research and install etc for my 2.7T.

    I used the MB rotor, not sure about the Volvo.

    17z Caliper with C5 S6 321 mm roto

    here is a link I found however the pictures aren't working. Also the measurement for the 17z pad to the 321 mm rotor surface area. I believe it may be just exact according the post below measurements

    "So at 64-65mm, its just about exactly the same size as the rotors surface area" by Vinchenzo51

    "The 17z caliper will bolt up just fine, and can be used with the OEM S6 rotor (although there is some pad overhang). " Castor Troy

    Just wanted to know it there pad overhang was within limit?
