OEM Brake pads vs Ceramic Pads


Recommended Posts

My Porsche service Tech mentioned that although the OEM pads create a huge amount of brake dust, the ceramic pads are of concern because of the noise they produce. I might add that my mechanic is not working for a stealership but does have over 25 years of experience with Porsche. What are some of your comments for Cayenne users with ceramic brakes?

I can only state my own personal experience with Hawk HPS pads. When i installed them properly and followed the bed-in procedures they have remained as quiet as the originals that came on the vehicle. The dust situation has improved greatly as I was expecting. The 'feel' of the brakes is as good or better than the originals in my experience.

I have just brand new rotors and pads fitted on my 2009 CTT... But the NOISE!!!!

The squeal is terrible, and my dealership tells me "to just go and do a few emergency stops...." to try and sort it out.

Does fitting the ceramic pads reduce/eliminate the noise?

I read in the forums that Hawk pads are good, and a lot of talk of EBC yellow/red.....

For basically town/motorway driving, what would be the best selection?

We live in Denmark, so cold wet climate is the norm.... Lots of snow and slush at the moment.... :-)
