I believe you need 18z Brembos(Porsche Cayenne S) for those. The Boxster S still a better option, as the 18z require some milling of the calipers, p0lar says turn key, i'd wait to see Hopefully not too long tho, as my disks are cracked and I neeeeeed new ones pronto

I'm absurdly busy with domestic home renovations, so there's no time frame on delivery quite yet.


Good to hear!

Calipers that require milling are a serious pain even when it's only a simple milling of the bosses. I've been there -- over, and over, and over again.

Almost every fixed-caliper augmentation to the E46 M3 requires trimming of the dust shield, so that's not a huge ordeal with a cut-off wheel or snips, but actual caliper mods drag down the project quickly. Turn-key is the way to go, but then it requires finding a caliper with pads that match the rotor pad widths, rotor thickness allocation within the caliper body, piston size bias matches, OEM mounting boss offset compatibility, etc. I could go on at length about the various challenges, but it sums to a single word: difficult.

I understand that not everybody has access to a mill, however, it seems to me that milling off 1.5mm of those front pads on the 996 calipers, is a lot less work than all that stuff you just described.

If anybody needs pads milled off on their 996's calipers let me know. I can do it for $40 plus shipping.

Are you saying the Boxster S and 996 front pads aren't the same even though the calipers are?

One question. What components are the most expensive?

He was probably referring to the mounting bosses on the calipers.

It's a tossup between the calipers and associated repairs/refinishing and new OEM rotors.

Yes, that is correct. Pads was not a good word to use for to describe the mounting surfaces on the calipers. My bad.
