For what I've understood so far, the braking system here (I can speak for Portugal, and the 2017 model, as it's what I have. Don't know about the rest of Europe) is ATE/Teves, and the "normal" onde you see all around the world is Akebono.
I need to figure out if a simple brake caliper swap can...
I have recently come across this issue when going for a brake pad change...
I ordered a set of Dixcel Type ES brake pads for my EUDM FK7, reference 331256. And when my mechanic went to install them, they were physically different.
The manufacturer of my brake calipers is ATE, my...
Just here to leave positive feedback. This same noise started happening to me. My mechanic had already warned me that my pads were reaching their limit, so your reply only confirmed the inevitable for me, and calmed me down.

Guys, I'm sorry to revive this thread...

When I disable the CMBS I...
@Bennybira time to update the post :D
@vonlaser and @vethekim mentioned the Tein coilover kit
as @Zodd mentioned tech specs, we could compile a spreadsheet of useful information (FAQ)
Also gotta add swift and spoon springs to the list and KW suspension coilovers
Firstly, you should disconnect your battery as you will be dealing with the airbag. This has been stressed in many posts before, you do not want that thing to blow up while you're handling it.
You can get hurt, or damage the interior of your car in the process.
There are two Torx T30 screws in...
my first idea would be to find a version of the car that would have such access panel in the rear arm rest and swap the necessary parts.
Altough I don't recall any version that has it, so I think your best option is to mod the panel.
I have never done this, but I assume it should be a...
