Straight swap, perfect fit, no dramas 

I’ll soon need new front pads, so I’m considering the Clubsport S route on my ‘15 plate R. However I’m cautious as the part numbers show different for discs, pads, callipers etc. I can order what I ne

Straight swap Callipers are the same just the pad covers are different being silver. Check out my build thread I may have show part numbers when I fitted mine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Are the pads different to stock R pads?

The pads are indeed different on the clubsport s, can expect slightly higher heat resistance however this will be offset marginally by the R being slightly heavier than their intended use.

 

Also at the same time these are an OEM brake pad so can’t be expected to live with an absolute murdering like a dedicated track pad.

My car is a performance pack car. Specced it from new (everything but leather seats and DCC).

 

The discs are in that pack for circa 3k including a lip spoiler (removed and changed to oettinger) and top speed increased (done via tuning anyway) lol. 
 

Discs did 30k miles before they lipped and 2 sets of pads so not to bad. Attached are the new ones I put on about a month ago and photo of the box labels if that helps.

Hi

I just got a quote back from the dealer where I bought my car (2018 car, facelift no performance pack) and they told me he wasn’t sure they would fit. The calipers of the performance pack have a different code than my car ( non- performance pack). He also told me there might be a difference in bolts or clearance room for the pads due to different bearings ?  🤔🤷‍♂️ 
This got me starting to doubt.

 

I told him a lot of R owners have made the mod already,he answered ok if you are sure. But he still couldn’t guarantee me they would fit.
After some more chatting he told me the price ! ! 
600 EUR per disc and 270 EUR per brake pad, so around 1600EUR in total without labour !


Is this a normal price these days ?? I know everything is getting more expensive but come on… 

I live in Belgium, but that shouldn’t make such a difference. 
 

Just would like to know for peace of mind that you need no extra’s next to the discs and pads.

Would it be possible to only fit the performance pack/ clubsport s discs and still keep the normal brake pads ?
Actually my discs and pads are still ok, but I do love  the look of the aluminium bells and drilled disc faces. 
 

Maybe someone can recommend a good website to get these  OEM performance pack discs at a normal price ? 
🥴

Clubsport S discs & pads are a straight replacement for any R so have no worries about purchasing a set, price of the discs have increased slightly and currently will set you back £400 a pair with pads coming in at around £170

Thanks for your confirmation! This has convinced me again. Shame my dealer doesn’t have the knowledge … 

any recommendations for a good company/ website in the UK that ships to Belgium ?
