This is the top trim level. Sort of how the 911 base is $97k but the Turbo S is $190k.

You should be measuring your rotors then. Because at the end of the pad life they are likely below minimum thickness.

You may want to hand in that degree then. Because Porsche doesn’t think it’s coating is going to last past a set of pads. They’ll last marginally longer than the base brakes, but not as long as the PCCBs.

the SUVs tend to see daily driver duty more often and go through brakes faster. Not that this really extends the life much, but it helps it look much more presentable than the normal high dust brakes they use.

Ceramics ruin the Macans because the front brake bias is so bad they end up nose diving. The single piston rear Q5 caliper (despite its new yellow paint) can’t keep up.

It’s not like the entire rotor is made of that. It’s a really thin layer sprayed on top. Just like all other Porsche’s expect to be doing rotors and pads every brake job.

No it’s not. It’s a facelift the way the 2015 Cayenne was to the 11-14. Or the 991 to 991.2.

yeah but that’s a corolla thing. Most econoboxes always ran. Even the base Golf was somewhat reliable. The GTI used CIS for the MK2 and it was always screwy because nobody knew how to adjust it properly.

I edited it right after I posted. Like less than a minute after. That’s why I’m curious as to how you saw the original and replied. No need to be shitty.

Not sure what you’re replying to. Already edited my post about this garbage site layout.

Yeah this is all the typical “bawwwww GM didn’t want a better sports car” argument that holds zero water. Fiero sales kept drying up because they had a reputation for being complex to work on and catching fire. Not to mention they didn’t finally make it a corvette “beating” car until 87/88 when they updated the

It only happens on higher trim levels or special editions. Your average Cayenne “fastback” buyer won’t be getting those houndstooth seats. Same with your base Cayman or 911 buyer.

Having driven both, the Corolla was nowhere near as fun to throw around as a similar GTI.

Not really a first world problem other than a majority of GT2s are likely being bought as an investment where the “rarer” the car is there is a perceived value increase as well. Which if every car had the weissach package it doesn’t really help the value.
