Thanks,

I don't remember. When I had the 17" VW goals, I needed 3mm spacers.

hi, thanks everyone for posting all the information it has helped me greatly in my quest to run passat LCA's and boxster non s calipers. I have stumbled across these pads on ebay, looks like someone managed to machine down a set of boxster s pads to fit (not me by the way, but i will be purchasing ;-)):

You don't need to buy machined down Ferodo DS2500 to fit the non-S caliper, Ferodo makes them to fit. I ran them as my first set of pads in my Boxster kit and I just opened the box and slid them in.

And I have to say they blow the Stoptech's I currently have on the car out of the water.

Actually, if you want to use the whole rotor face the GTI has, then the regular porsche boxer pads won't do the trick, hence these modified ones... they are taller and sweep the whole rotor, and do not leave the inside 7mm untouched, which then quickly rusts.

True that. Those 7mms are annoying.

The link i supplied is for pads already modified, or you could grab a grinder and modify your own... its easy, especially if you have the original pads you just sit them on top and mark them.
