I had a 4 wheel alignment done on the Boxster a few weeks back and the chap who carried out the work pointed out the state of the front discs. From the outside they looked fine, however the back face of the discs were badly scored and rusty. After closer inspection it was clear that they needed changing:
I did some searching on the web to find some replacement prices and decided to go with OEM parts from Jasmine Porschalink . New discs and pads + replacement caliper bolts came to £250.
The discs are serious bits of engineering and weight a hell of a lot, so much so that £250 felt like a bargain. Fitting was easy enough and job was done in under two hours.
Just need to let them bed in a bit now 🙂
Note to self fitted at 32,680 miles.
