CSL/ZCP rotor upgrade

Well, after 44k my euro front rotors, installed at delivery, were down to minimum (rears have 0.8 mm to go). I've been happy with these for the street, so I decided to go with the larger CSL/Competition Package rotors. The stock calipers can be used, even though the ZCP ones have a different part number. New carriers extend the rotors the extra 0.4" The ZCP pads also have a different compound (I don't know specifics). All were purchased from Vaheh at Crevier--very good service and price.

Despite being only 0.8" larger, they look much bigger side-by-side with stock. I think the proportions are much nicer with my RG4s.

Euro front rotors with 44k miles:


ZCP front rotor, carrier and pads:


Standard euro front (12.8") compared to ZCP (13.6")


New rotor and carrier in place (right side):


Complete installation:




The red is just the anti-squeal paste and will soon be gray. I ran out of time, so the Stoptech stainless lines will be next weekend's project.

Part nos: (1 ea.) front rotors--34-11-2-282-445 & 446; (2) carriers--34-11-2-282-619; (1) pads--34-11-2-282-995.
