Hi All ,

Sorry more Gt4 specific but i thought this would be the place for someone to answer my query.

I've had my Gt4 2 weeks (current mileage 2k)and noticed quite a bit of noise mainly squeaking when slowing down from 30 mph to a standstill.

I dropped it in at my local Porsche main dealer for inspection , and have been informed that its a GT Porsche and the brakes are prone to noise /squeaking due to harder brake pads and the fact that its a GT product.

they also stated that once the brakes get warm the squeaking will stop ??

I thought this may have been the case , i wondered if someone could possibly confirm this?

Thanks Guys
Thumb

I don't know about the GT4 but harder/high performance pads do tend to squeal until or unless they're heat cycled - in other words, you've warmed them up a bit and they have been properly bedded in.

I run Pagid RS29s and I just live with it, even though occasionally it's a bit wince-inducing in the city (when you have cold brakes). It was the same with Carbotechs, Ferodos, and Carbone Lorraine pads in my other cars over the years, when you can't use the brakes much...

The trick is to think of it like a loud exhaust, which is occasionally awkard or embarassing as you drive past the rozzers/old people's home/your mum's house/wife's place of work etc.

Hi Max

Thanks for the reply.

After a bit of research, it rings true what your saying , performance brakes /noise etc.

So if anyone asks "Why the squeaky brakes ..??"

" Its a Race Car ....!!!"

Incidentally - if you really couldn't live with it, Endless don't squeak and are very track friendly (albeit disproportionately spendy). Thumb

From my past and current experience, various Porsche sports car brakes squeak like a London taxi cab's brakes nooo ........

Alternative pads may improve the situation but could potentially be a reason to reject any future warranty claims.
