Replacement cost of brake and discs

Hi, Just trying to gauge the cost I can expect to pay for replacement of front and rear pads and discs on my 987.2 Boxster

    Chris,
     
    Are you thinking of genuine Porsche parts or OEM? - there's a big difference in price, although you'll get a 10% Club discount on Porsche parts. Textar pads and Sebro discs are good alternatives to genuine parts, and don't forget to budget for damping pads and wear indicators. Have a look on CarParts4Less or similar for typical prices.
     
    In general a Porsche Independent will charge significantly less to fit the parts than a Porsche Dealership.

    For a 987.2 Cayman, including fitting, I was quoted  by an OPC in the region of £800 for the fronts and the same again for the rears. I had mine done by a sports car specialist and paid about £800 for the lot

    I changed them myself, a fairly easy job - got all parts from Porscheshop but be careful - as mine was one of the first Gen2 models the discs were different so had to be exchanged. Went for Pagid pads which I wouldn’t recommend as brake dust was really bad even after a short journey.

    As previously stated, just fit your own, it's not a difficult job. Got Brembos on the front of mine which I think are OEM and are fine.
