R56 brake upgrade for R53. Keep dust shield?

I am doing the R56 brake upgrade for my R53 CS. Given this involves bigger rotors, do I keep the dust shields/air ducts, or do they go?
Thanks
Tony

I usually leave them on if it's a street car, but you may have to bend them a little to clear the rotors.
