      I have not touched the rears other than pounding on the tab thats rubbing on the tires. The rear fenders do not have a lip to be folded over like the front does. My rear tires juuuust barely squeak inside the wheel well. I would not be able to do this if the tire was a single millimeter wider or if the wheel stuck out a single millimeter farther, its that close, I got lucky. So if you want to go 235s make sure your wheels sit at least as inbound as a 19x8.5et46 and your tires are no wider than 235-35-19 BFG G-Force TA KDWs.

      Ihave 235-35-19 Conticontact 5P on RSe14 wheels an d did not have to touch anything to make it work. Not a single scratch on the tires... But I did not go for lower coilovers... yet !
      I do not think it will make much of a difference as long as I don't slam it.

      I thought black R would look pretty dull and boring. I was completely wrong after seeing your R.

      Still no engine mods so no need for more dyno time yet.

      Hah, not even the slightest. I'd put money on the fact that your car will put down 280-300 horse at the wheels and 310-330 lb/ft at the wheels on their Dynojet.

      So I'm pulling the trigger on those wheels very soon. Black R's unite

      But seriously, it gets better and better. I plan on getting yellow caliper brembos in the near future so I hope they clear the 709s

      Hell yeah, you gonna be up at Dubs in the Valley this weekend or Midwest Treffen in a couple weeks? You can check out the wheels in person if so. I should have the brakes on by Treffen too. If the 709s don't clear these brakes I will be REALLY surprised, there is so much room behind these spokes. I haven't decided on a color yet, one caliper I got is red and the other is silver so I have to do something unless I really want to be different. I will say I'm not doing yellow so you don't have to worry about two of us rolling around the midwest with identical setups.

      The parts have started rolling in.

      Got some "cheapo" pads to mock things up until I decide what pads I really want to run.


      It REALLY hurt paying $70 for these bolts/washers/nuts but time is money and I didnt have to source anything, just click the button and it shows up at my door.


      Should I keep one of these colors or do something new?

      Red would look great on your color.

      People keep saying red which would go with the red taillights on the car and is classy/classic OEM+ Porsche style. But I've been thinking about doing a little throwback to the days of old and doing R32 blue? Is that not cool because its not an R32? I feel like R32 blue will be pretty bada** looking but still understated, classy and VW OEM+ style.

      If I did upgraded calipers I'd do yellow because it'd look badass with the Rising Blue. For your color I would do red or blue, yeah. Blue would be fine.

      More brake updates. Stoptech stainless lines showed up today. They are MKIV R32 front lines. They bolt directly to the Brembo calipers with no other hardware necessary. Tonight or tomorrow I should be able to get one of these calipers mocked up so I can check for rotor fitment, wheel clearance etc. I'm getting super excited now!



      MKV and MKVI ends are a hoop and require a banjo bolt setup to go into the caliper. MKIV R32 cable ends are a 45 degree elbow with a threaded floating nut as seen below. I prefer this style, less parts is better.


      Proof the lines bolt right up to the caliper.
