No warping, no fading, if you can get 15" wheels then get the second gen ones. Both are a direct bolt on. You will need the back plate from the 2nd gen, I believe the 1st gen one is compatible. The 2nd gen brakes are larger and rumor has it you can get 4 pots from the r107.....

I have the second gen ones and when I hit the brakes hard it feels like you hit a wall. I am going to upgrade my wifes wagon as well.

The only downside is more unsprung weight. But the trade off is well worth it.

If your really up to it, do the 2nd gen spindles and install ABS. I am pretty sure this will be on the eventual list for me, my left spindle is badly scarred.
