Pray those brake rotors don't take a rock or something -- fuck $4k+ for a single new rotor!

Sick car, though. I've been really considering getting the TPC turbo kit installed on my Cayman.

Not that I have noticed but I'm also used to a little noise from direct injection already from the S4.

Yeah, a lot of guys replace the ceramic rotors with steel and put 'em aside in case they sell it.

Another issue was with the pad material chunking off and taking the rotor with it. I don't think anyone tracks with them. But, the calipers are upgraded, so there's that.

Why would you buy a car with brakes like this in the first place if reliable brakes were a less expensive option? Seems like there aren't that many up-sides to those, for anyone who isn't a professional racing team.

Is it just about resale value? The second owner is going to want the ceramics because his penis is small and he needs to compensate, and you have to give the car away later if it doesn't have them?

Interesting how low the wheel offset is. Generally I'm against that trend but the Porsche wears it well.

That's literally the only thing that doesn't scream pure sex to me. I'd like some more lip on them. Still, not too shabby.

ceramics driven on the street last FOR EV ER,

ceramics driven on the street by a basic bitch like PDog will outlast the car

also, doesn't even look like you're able to configure the S down to plebrakes so.... In summary....

Get out poor
