Hello,

I read somewhere that it is not a direct fit and needs a 35mm spacer behind the rotors... is this because the two cars have different hubs?

thanks in advance.

Are you asking why we need a spacer? Or why you have to put it behind the rotors?
Where did you read this at?

This doesn't exactly answer your question but another alternative,
I saw a write up recently of someone installing Hyundai XG350 front calipers, which are dual piston onto our cars and was essentially direct bolt up and CHEAP! Another alternative is N75s brake kit which uses straight bolt up calipers and can still clear 17" rims

3.5mm spacer behind VN rotor not a 35mm spacer. Once in place, it centers the rotor in the brake caliper/pads so even contact is made. Keep in mind the spacer needs to be custom made because the inner bore size is different than 67.1mm.

Did they say what year XG350 and what year their car was?

So this kid did a pretty good write up on this oem dual piston brake upgrade. I spent a little time searching on ebay and Amazon but neither of them have these calipers in stock. I went to O'Reilly and they have them available all in for the pair for $260. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger and guinea pig this on my 20 N Line.

Are you guys in the Facebook group? All this has already been done several times.

I am but the FB group seemed ever so slightly more informed than this group. Like I brought an FB account out of five years of dormancy and found no real benefit to it. Some parts guru from SK couldn't even get me an I30N rear wing. Maybe I've lost the FB touch after all these years but the whole page seemed like people trying to retrofit early 2010's models with current parts.

You aren't in the 2018+ group then. It is dedicated to the PD cars with TONS of information. Also nobody from South Korea can get you that part because they aren't sold there. You have to buy one from Europe or Australia. If you aren't in that group then once you join you'll realize what you have been missing out on. Almost everyday there is something interesting being posted. Someone today just swapped a bunch of their interior dash LED's from blue to red and showed some of the parts.
