  1. I need some help with this. I wanted to replace all 4 corners with EBC pads and rotors but what I found out is my car has 360mm rotors. There is a large selection of 350mm and 380mm rotors but the 360mm rotors are hard to come by in a aftermarket performance series brake rotor. Does anyone have any experience with this and what products did they wind up purchasing. Thank in advance for any suggestions
  2. The stock pads are actually pretty good overall, but if you want to get more bite, there are several aftermarket brands that could help you there, but with increased rotor wear and the potential for noise. If you are going to switch pad compounds, you would be better to do it on all four corners rather than one end only. Flushing the brake system is critical on these vehicles. Over time, all brake fluids absorb moisture which can then corrodes some pretty expensive to replace components in the ABS and stability management systems, resulting in thousands of dollars of repairs. Brake fluid is cheap, components are not. I have to agree with Loren on the price quoted; seems very high. Do you have any recommendations for pads and rotors?
  3. Im sure this question has been asked before but wondering if anyone could help me. I need to replace my rear brake rotors and pads. The dealer told me there is about a MM before the sensors go off. The price from the dealer is $1100.00 which seems pretty high to replace pads and rotors. I have been checking around and see there are different size rotors based on the model and options. I have a S with silver calipers which I believe is the standard braking setup. What pads and rotors should I use, I drive pretty hard and would like something with a little more grabbing power. Also would I need to change the fronts to match the rear or could I change them when needed? Should I just stick with the stock ones? Why does the brake fluid need to be changed? New to Porsche but have had BMW and Audi and don't remember the brake fluid being a big deal? Thanks for the help
