Are the brembo discs at Euro car parts ok. Does anyone know if they are painted? They have 19% off and a further 35% off so all four discs £210?!? Seems ridiculously good value ?!?

They should be the same. CP4L are usually cheaper using the discount code on their home page and they're the same firm.

I have Brembo discs & pads on my 996.1, they're far better than the previous Sebro/Ate setup I had - much better feel in the pedal and quite a bit more efficient at stopping, they've also lasted a fair bit longer too thumbsup

I got the fronts from ECP for half price but haven't fitted them yet. Was recommended them instead of Pagid as Pagids from ECP known to warp?

Are the discs supplied by Porsche Brembo? If so, are there any differences in the discs supplied by each? Is there a part number stamped on them to distinguish from non OE.
Or is it a case of exactly the same part, just different box

TIA
FZP

Turbo discs are SHW. They manufacture exclusively for Porsche and do not supply after-market outlets.

https://www.shw.de/produkte/bremsscheiben/bearbeitete-bremsscheiben/

Hence only available from OPC. Turbo discs by SHW through OPC are expensive!

For the NA cars it is confusing - some say OEM are Pagid, others say Sebro and some say its Brembo. On PH's there is another name - Zimmerman.

Outside the Turbo, it is not clear who the original manufacturer is for the range. Possibly all of the above for different models?

I would suspect that all the above are suppliers to Porsche, all of those appear as suppliers at some stage and probably dependant on many factors like availability and price they have all supplied Porsche discs. I run Brembos on my motorcycles, there products are excellent my main concern is that the housing part is painted or coated so it doesn't rust?!?!

I thought that the calipers were Brembo so just assumed discs would be the same. From you observation it sounds like who ever struck the deal at a particular point in time.
I'll do some more research.

I have the brembos from ecp and the centres are painted with shiny dark grey paint. Great quality product and a big improvement over my previous old discs. Sometimes they do a 50% discount on brakes and that's what I used to score a bargain.

FZP: The turbo discs (996 at least) are SHW and only available with a Porsche part number from OPC.

On non-turbo cars it is not clear who is original supplier.
Similarly, pads is uncertain - textar, pagid, ATE, Brembo?

My Brembo's have painted hubs, been on there for circa 9000 miles without any degradation in appearance.

Just looking on carparts4less at the moment and a full set of Pagid discs for the C4S is coming in at about £240 which sounds very cheap.

I cant see the other offer on the Euros website though for the brembos or is that for for non C4S?

I've fitted Pagid rear discs to my 4S. Seemed very good quality, nicely painted hubs. Pads will be around £100 all round, you might get away without replacing the anti-vibration dampers and wear sensors.

They were for the c4 rather than the c4s. Managed the get all four brembo discs for £180. I’ll get pads, dampers and wear sensors prior to fitting.

Looked for a set of 997 turbo front rotors (350mm steel) today, none in stock anywhere, and almost impossible to get on ebay too without paying OEM prices!

Whats going on!?
