My 2003 996C2 convertible is in need of new brakes. I was thinking it would be cheaper to buy OEM rather than Porsche original parts, but I cannot find who manufactures the Porsche brakes for my car. Any ideas/part #?

There should be many aftermarket alternatives at your local reputable parts source.

Aftermarket rotor examples (might have different brand name in Europe). Zimmermann Coat Z, Balo, Sebro, Centric, DBA, Brembo

Aftermarket pad examples (might have different brand name in Europe). ATE, Textar, Mintex

In the USA for alternatives we would go to pelicanparts.com or tirerack.com for example. Not sure about Greece.

If the rotors are not too far out of spec, they can be resurfaced and then you only need to replace the pads and springs.

Brake grease and cleaner are also recommended but do not have to be Porsche brand.

Thank you logray for the detailed reply.

I was wondering if we know who is manufacturing the actual Porsche part (Porsche does not make rotors or pads). I don't want to go for an alternative, I want the exact same part - I just don't care to pay extra for the "Porsche" logo on the cardboard box it comes in.

I am not 100% positive, but from what I can tell at least according to Pelican Parts who lists these companies as OEM suppliers to Porsche (there could be others as well).

"Textar" supplies pads to Porsche.

"Zimmermann Coat Z" and "Sebro" supply rotors to Porsche.
