Default 957 Cayenne DIY: '08 Turbo Front Brake Pads DIY Video

Hello Rennlisters,

I decided to make a DIY tutorial for how to change the brake pads on a 2008 Cayenne Turbo. These calipers are different from other turbos in that you must remove the calipers to change the brake pads. Also, this might help others, so I'll share my thoughts on brake pads. Avoid the TRW ceramic pads! They squeal badly and don't fit the calipers perfectly. As a result, the pads shift slightly when you go from reverse to drive and vice versa. I swapped these out for Textar pads and am very satisfied with them for daily driving. Hope this video helps some of you out there!

What size rotors did your CTT come with? I just had a long chat with Auto Anything and they tried to tell me my 08 CTT has 13.8" rotors. They also told me they didn't know of any German company that made rotors so he pushed the EBC Ultimax claiming they were the only option. Funny part is that the website itself said I have 14.5" rotors and shows 3 different levels of EBC rotors!
