I own a 2015 S60 RD and always wanted a little more braking power and thought the 04-07 R Calipers would look cool. Does anyone know if those would fit a S60RD?

I saw there are big brembo brake kits which a couple thousand.

But more interested in the R Calipers, always liked those. I searched the forum and couldn't find that answer! Thanks!

Amen to that. I always LOVED the look of the P2 calipers. Sadly, I think they're likely smaller than the 13'' RD system we have now...

They're pretty much the same size as the 13 inch RD system, on both front and rear rotors though.

Isn't Connor over at VIVA building a kit for our P3 vehicles? Not sure if they will fit the OEM wheels, would love for them to work with the OEM 19" wheels. I know there is a guy out in WA that is putting P2R Brembo's on a P3 S80 T6 AWD, his Instagram handle is "atomdd"

Would be great - i figure if p2 pegs clear the brembos than even the 18'' ixioms would be just fine...

The Stock brakes are not very exciting or appealing especially when stock silver color wears off! All the R-Design wheels look awesome but then those stock brakes take away from them a bit.

I might have to message atomdd on Instagram. I asked my current dealership and they didn't have a clue which is understandable.

If anyone finds anything let us know! Thanks!

who wants to get some momentum around a set of custom brackets then?
Looked into this when I moved over from an '07 VR to a '16 VRD and was told 'no way' but, for the front callipers anyway, it must just be an issue of finding or fabricating a proper mounting bracket. I know Brembo and P* just want to sell us the six-piston monsters, but the brackets can't be that different for the earlier R 4-pistons.
Having said that, there is little to complain about with the existing RD callipers, but the P2 Rs would look so much better.

i just ask brimbo but with my s4 when i bought brakes i found porsche brakes and bought the s4 brimbo plates. actually i bought the stop tech plates because they were cheaper. at least at the time all 4 piston brimbos were the same no matter what name was printed on it. mounting plates were car specific.:)

The P* calipers surely are 6 pots, but the Brembo GT kit for our cars is a four pot setup.

anything more than this?

Apparently the S80 knuckle is a direct fit to the S60 and that is what he's using to adapt, however, the part is not cheap!
330mm vs 336 on the newer RD is meh. In my opinion.

Also, I believe the Rds had a better 60-0 foot wise than the s60rs. So wouldn't putting these calipers on be a step in the wrong direction?

I have also seen 60-0 times for the R at 114ft and 2012 RD(my car) at 110.


So it appears those wanting to slap those brakes on would do so for appearance only? I would think it would make your braking times worse?

I've only seen the 70-0MPH Braking Times. After owning all three a 2007 S60R, 2012 S60RD and now 2015 V60RD, the 2012 S60RD had the worse braking feel and distance of the three.

Honestly if the performance is basically equal yet the look is that much better, given the profile of the wheel choices for the S60, i would be in favor of doing this mostly visual upgrade for <1,000.
