Hi,

Just looking for some advice regarding brakes on the 997 GT3 RS, I have seen a few cars with delaminating ceramics with owners, dealers unwilling to drop the price to allow for replacement. I am now considering cars with steel brakes, my question is do steel brakes affect future re-sale and how different are they on road and very occasional track day. Will I miss them!

Gen 1 or gen 2? On the gen1 the ceramic is a larger diameter than the steel, on the gen2 they are the same. Ceramics are a nice weight saving, keep your wheels clean with the much reduced brake dust. Is there a performance advantage? On the 997 id say miniscule at best, more down to the weight reduction than outright braking power and even then you could say that you are giving up some feel. If you do use them hard enough to eek out the advantage then you will definitely be into the expensive wear and tear you are currently seeing with thecras you are looking at. On a pure road car they are a nice to have. Personally i would be avoiding, plague like, on an older car and seeking out steels as a massive priority..

So, no, I doubt you would miss them IMHO
