pads and rotor questions?

Recommended Posts

at what mileage have people replaced their pads -front or rear -with moderate driving, not track. have you also replaced your rotors at the same time? have you needed to do both front and rear at the same time? now - the important question what has it cost?

the story: brought my car in to swap out my winter wheels and tries for the summer set and got to talking to the service rep about brakes. (i currently have 28000 on my 02 C2 - they said front pads 60% left - rear 75% left). his answer was around 50,000 or so with a cost of $1000 per axle for pads and rotors?

what has been your experience? thanks larry

hey Larry,

$1000 per axel is way to much!

a fair price is something $1200 for both axel, of course that is only for the parts.

You can wear down the pads til the warn lamp lids up and the rotors recommended by Porsche -2mm of thinkness.
