Note also there is a bit more rear brake torque with this setup - bigger rotor plus 42mm vs 40mm caliper piston.

Yes thats all. Rear brake hose is unchanged. You just need item 10. Caliper bolts straight on.

Has anyone who has fitted a Porsche 996/Boxster "S" front brake kit had any issues when fitting new pads as I have read you may need to skim some material off

the pads due to the BMW disc being thicker than the Porsche disc.
