Yes the touareg calipers fit. They are the same as the cayenne six pot brembos but, are overkill imho. I think the Boxster 4pots are the most reasonable for this car. But then again I'm not speaking from experience and you guys do some crazy things.

Doesn't ECS stock a caliper carrier? EVOMS used to as well. I haven't looked in a while. It's a great upgrade. I did it on my last Passat and it's noticeable to say the least.

5.5 pounds lighter per side too which is a difference you can feel..

You will need the Porsche Vibration dampers as well (not cheap) as this set-up is naturally noisy

I'm not trying to be argumentative, but how are you feeling the weight difference? I know it's technically not sprung weight, and a reduction in inspiring weight is always good, but it's not rotating mass either. When I did this upgrade I didn't notice any difference other than the braking.

Unsprung weight such as calipers, carriers, suspension components etc assist with the compression and rebound of your suspension, think of it this way. take a 10lb weight and swing it left and right, now take a 5lb weight and swing it left and right... which one can you swing faster with less effort?
Same thing applies with unsprung non rotating mass. The less weight you have the faster your suspension can react to potholes, rapid left & right turns, braking, acceleration.

/\ This!

I happen to be very sensitive to chassis dynamics so it's definitely a difference I can feel (you may not)..I've done this on other cars with similar results. Between my brakes and wheels I'm down 7.5 lbs per side. In Unsprung weight, this is pretty substantial..

So aside from having 4 pistons & a monoblock caliper vs 1 piston floating caliper. They are 5.6lbs lighter than the stock setup!
With so many threads about "weight reduction" this definitely is one of the more important.

reducing Unsprung non rotating mass(calipers, carriers, suspension components) will help your suspension do its job better.

reducing unsprung rotating mass (calipers, wheels, tires) will help your car brake better, accelerate faster, & help your suspension do its job better.
