I've heard good things about these guys though I've never used them before: http://renewedfinishes.com/home

Looking forward to my 18Zs

+1 to this.
Sad to see the 18z as a thing of the past I sold my old set when I parted my car. Would have killed for a set on this car!

Sorry guys, it's just difficult for me to keep this up without a mill within a few minutes' drive of my house. The logistics of shipping calipers up to 5 times for all work to be done is just a few steps too far to make it economically and chronologically feasible.

Not sure what you need done and if it would help you, but I own a machine shop with 7 CNC's at my disposal. I gather the logistic of shipping back an forth are the issue though.

While we are at it, what is the deal with the pads. I keep reading that I need to use the D737 Pad. This number doesn't really mean anything to me and when ordering Hawk Pads at Tire Rack for example, it asks for year, make and model. So do I buy 4 sets of Boxster S FRONT Pads? Can someone explain?

Quoting myself I think I answered my own question.

Front pads:
Boxster S front pads

Rear pads:
Boxster (non S) front pads
