With the darker satin wheels you'll hardly notice brake dust...
Trust me, I have Platinum satin wheels and you definitely notice how dull they get when dusty.

PCCB is only worth it if you can afford it.. I love mine, and I will not get a 911 without PCCB. LOOKS and Zero Brake dust along makes it worth $$

Curious does anyone know if there are any differences between 991.2 2018 T and 991.2 2019 T? Any changes?

For the number of times I'd use/need them it wouldn't be worth the cost. And, for $8.5k I'll clean a little brake dust myself.

Although my ca is not a T but a MY2018 GTS I am really disappointed that I did not spec PCCBs on my car and have the steel brakes.

I do not track my car and the brake dust of Porsche OEM pads is ridiculous. My car has 1000 miles and I am really considering to change something in my brakes.

I do not like at all the 45 mins spending to clean my wheels every week and after 1 hour driving to be again full of dust.

There is any solution in the GTS calipers to upgrade rotors or pads and reduce the brake dust?

I have found a brand new set of PCCBs (latest PCCBs) @ 15K USD but my main concerns are that I prefer the red calipers as my car is GBM with Red seat belts and the PCCB upgrade is not a PAG approved upgrade therefore no warranty for the brakes at all.

The only regret of my order was that I did not spec the PCCBs and I need to find a solution on the ridiculous brake dust. My wheels are coated with GTechnic Crystal Cerum but again the dust production comes from the steel brakes and OEM pads.

I believe in reading about the new 992 they have a new coated brake material that was developed specifically for reduction of brake dust. Wouldn't those fit 991's.
I have PCCB's and other than the braking which is awesome the lack of dust is fantastic.

Yes, PSCB. They are out on the Cayenne now. Just do a search and you can find plenty of articles on the technology.

PCCBs are not designed for long term track use they wear out and replacement cost from Porsche is now in the neighborhood of $26,000.

PCCB's are the best money you can spend on Porsche's IMO. Porsche standard brakes are great but the cost is lots of dust even going around the block. I regret not having them on my Macan. The new brakes mentioned are great but the brilliant white calipers (can get black for $1000) seem out of place and I think the cost is in the $4k range with no comments yet on tracking.

Said it before and I'll say it again, I've owned both and I would never, ever buy a new Porsche without speccing PCCB brakes. They are probably the best bang for the buck option you could check on a street Porsche, particularly given all the useless bling most people throw onto their builds.

Honestly cannot understand PAG why PCCB upgrade is not an official upgrade in reasonable cost. It is brakes....
