Rims, brakes, spacers

So as far as I know, mine is stock. I read write ups on my SE in several magazines from 03. A few mentioned this car had "brakes borrowed from a Carerra" but I don't see any difference between mine and a S. My spacers measure 6.5mm. The brake calipers are 4-piston monoblock all the way around. Front rotors are directional cross drilled, rears are same pattern both sides and interchangeable. 205/50 front and 255/40 rear.

The 550 edition was equipped with the factory 5mm spacers front and rear. And 18" Carrera wheels with the 5 spokes painted Seal Gray. The silver calipers were unique, but only as far as their color.

I used to be in love with the 550, and memorized the features backwards and forwards.

The wheels on your car currently are not familiar to me. Do you know where the Carreras went?

The wheels on my car are shown in write ups on that car, I'll do a quick search. That's exactly how I bought it.
