On the strength of this have just ordered Brembo discs all-round.
Excellent value on autodoc at the mo.

Jonno, which ones did you go for? Haven't pushed the button yet! Better price than eBay?

Hi Rob
C.£250 for the 4 inc. the insurance.

Didn't bother with eBay tbh. Too many Muppets these days!

Don't forget as well as pads and discs there are also the (anti)vibration plates and wear sensors.
Did you order Rob?

No, haven't ordered yet, just recovering from a serious case of overspendingonsuspesionitis Surprised Very Happy but will do in the next week or two, would like to get them sorted before the Dinslaken trip!

Have looked into the various types, the ones on eBay are an older version, the latest ones are a slightly different desig but the same material, however the older version discs are 200g lighter each which is a fair bit of unsprung mass!

Interesting. I'd not realised that.
For the same dimensions, that's a big weight difference...
GL getting sorted.

Sorry to resurrect the thread....

Could someone help to clarify here. I'm looking at discs and pads for the rear, leaning towards brembo based on a bit of reading around.

What's the difference between these?

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-BREMBO-FRONT-REAR-AXLE-BRAKE-KIT-BRAKE-DISCS-BRAKES-FOR-PORSCHE-911/223439036608?fits=Car+Make%3APorsche%7CPlat_Gen%3A997&epid=26017404337&hash=item34060120c0:g:0JMAAOSwY8NcgT7n

and

https://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod133548/Brake-Disc-Rotor-Rear-Porsche-996---997--OE-No-99635240502-and-99635240602/
with
https://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod133609/Brake-Pads-Front---Rear-Porsche-997---Cayman-R/

Design911 don't list the brembo part numbers only the OE part number. There seems to be a 1mm difference between the ebay ones and the design911?

After discounts ebay works out ~186gbp vs design911 ~239gbp

Will the ebay ones be right or should I pay the extra for design911?

I have a 2005 997 c2s.

why Brembo? have you tried euro car parts or carparts4less?

Hi Wattso, I haven't actually got around to doing my discs and pads yet, recovering form swapping out alternator, pulley wheels, water pump and starter cable!

Have a look at the Brembo website, when I was looking I checked out the part numbers from their fitment guide and used that to search/check on eBay etc.

It does have my year C2S listed as compatible I think.

I think it comes down to what it calls 'heavy duty suspension' vs non heavy duty suspension which I think affects the part number.

@DucatiRob Cheers for that, I think the parts I need are:
Pads P 65 018
Discs 09.C878.11

Available on 'best parts store' ( which looks to be yet another ECP / car parts 4 less spin off? for 192.89gbp

Total cost of brembo rear discs & pads 192.89
Total cost of SEBRO + Texar 201

In answer to the question "why brembo" I'm thinking even if performance is identical ( although from the accounts I can find it seems to suggest marginally better than SEBRO ) then the coating preventing a rust look is a good positive for the same price.

Ultimately though if SEBRO or Pagid are going to perform better / last longer I'd love to hear some accounts of that?

Dont think it does, which is a shame as the price is good for a full set

Can't really go wrong with Brembo a brand I have always used on bikes and cars, Pagid/Sebro/Textar all have good reviews, so I don't think you can really go wrong, matching the Brembo discs and pads would swing it for me, plus that is a really good price!

Sorry to hi-jack the thread - was going to ask the same question, so thought no need to double up!

My service has confirmed my fronts need replacing (as expected).

OPC has quoted £1,150...! OEM from local guy is c.£900. But was considering Brembo. Sounds like this is a good option looking at the replies on this thread.

Assume OK to have Brembo on front, until OEMs on rear require replacement?

Also think I figured out why the car has felt a bit twitchy at the front, especially since I replaced the rears...... The fronts are 9 years old!!!! Probably a little hard and non-effective......

I just got my fronts done from an Indie, cost £700 - not sure which ones he uses, but would have cost less if I'd bought the pads, discs, sensor etc - and asked him to fit.

Hi Rob

Cannot comment on Brembo disks ....

Pagid RS29 pads are super agressive and very good. Te down side is break dust, loads of it. I would still reccomend them tho!

Just to follow up on my posts earlier on this thread, went with Brembo discs and pads all round a couple of months back.
Excellent price from autodoc, took about a week to deliver so no good if you're in a hurry.

Very impressed with braking performance and the finish on the hat/ bell is far better at resisting rust than the dull grey oem primer.

10/10 from me.
