Almost 62,000 miles here. I've never had any brake noise in 5 driving seasons. I've also never had any brake noise on any of my prior Porsches.

I'd be more concerned about a "display of speed" violation than an exceeding decibel ticket on an unmodified DOT USA car. Like a cop is going to have a decibel meter?

Your car is almost 13 years old. Should have driven it more. Too bad. The IMS issue was very rare on the 987.1 series. You got unlucky. $hit happens. Move on.

Then you have an adulterated odometer or a bogus DME report or a tampered DME or a combo of all three.
