Good luck selling this. With only three cars on AT (one of which seems to have an "eventful" past), I can't see it hanging around long, especially with the buckets, manual and low(ish) mileage. As long as the price starts with a 3, you should get plenty of interest with such a shortage of stock.

Yesterday I finally managed to get out and finish off the last bits I needed to on the AP brakes, fortunately all the travelling to get access to tools allowed them to bed in nicely.

Posted some before and after shots, they look so good and yes probably over kill but yesterday I managed to actually do some testing on them, pedal with stock MC is so much firmer but yet still perfectly progressive enough for heal toe with big feet!

Yet to do any full emergency stops but so far done some higher speed firmer stops, they really do slow the car rapidly!

Next is to book in a track session to actually see how they perform!

So far though I’m extremely happy with them, kinda wish Porsche put slightly bigger discs on as standard, at least the size of the PCCB

They look great. Is there more pedal travel than before? I still need to jump on mine hard and see what the ABS thinks of them.

Car sounds lovely.

Pedal travel is a lot less, firms more firm, pedal is about level with the accelerator pedal when being pushed and starts getting firm.

Basically it’s about the right level I would want it to be to still blip on a down shift

Yes bells and brackets were made by BG developments, rotors are AP Racing as are the pads.

Front is 390mm and I’m running a 7mm spacer so wheel weights are far enough away.
Rears are 370mm to keep the same 20mm size difference the originals had (318/298)

Yes we did, can’t remember the exact about but was about 4/5kg a corner, steering feels marginally firmer.

Hopefully one day will be at events where people have a try and see what they think

5kg per cornerconfused That will kill the ride and the acceleration

Can't say I noticed a difference to the ride with my similarly weighted brake upgrade.

Yes. Consider the wheel and tyre weigh approx 20kg you have effectively added 25% to the unsprung mass on each corner, that effects the spring and damper. Trying to accelerate that extra 20kg of rotating mass would be waste probably 20 bhp.

Certainly doesn't feel like its killed it, steering is marginally heavier, be interesting to put on a dyno and actually see what impact it has.

if it has lost 20 hp then I guess I better make some power mods to get it back in line smile
