    PCCB Yellow Brakes

    Has anyone had experience with PCCB Yellow Brakes on a Cayman S? If so, how do they work on the car? Is the feel and the handing and the stopping power worth their high cost? Any problems with squeaking, grabbing, etc.? Would you order them again?

    Thanks.

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    I don't have them, but several who do have reported liking them very much, both on the street and on track. I haven't read any complaints. My guess is that almost all would order them again. I'd prefer to have them myself, but not for an additional 8 grand.

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    8 grand new, worth zero dollars come trade in - you gotta like them a lot !

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    I can't believe that PCCB is worthwhile on a comparatively low powered car such as a Boxster / Cayman. More worthwhile on a GT3 or turbo.

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    I tracked a cayman s with pccb's, and I'd only recommend them if you track the car alot, but if its gonna be your dd don't bother.
    Pccbs are too harsh for just cruising, and its not as if the standards are crap...Anyway i don't see why anyone would invest all that extra cash in a cayman.
    You'd end up paying 997 money.

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    Any word on how long the new ones last if you are tracking the car? I wouldn't want to have to ever replace those suckers, that is for sure!

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    Well they should last a lifetime, but i've heard they can develope micro-cracks at anytime if used excessively.
    I'm not sure if there is a warranty of sorts, but they're much more expensive to replace than factory order.

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    Sounds like a mixed bag. I figured with the PCCBs and other options like PASM, sport chrono, bose, etc., a new Cayman S would cost, at minimum, in the mid-70s. And that would be with a standard interior. If you went full leather, etc., then you'd be pushing $80k.

    But the car would be distinctive. I've not seen one Cayman S on the street with yellow brakes. And where I live steel brakes rust overnight and esp. after you wash your car. So that might be an advantage for me. I'm concerned about them not being good for daily use == too harsh someone said? I haven't heard that one before.

    Thanks.

    Though I'm not talking from own experience there are some users (997 models though) who describe the usability exactly the other way round Good for use on public streets but not so good if you're a track guy. I know, sounds very confusing as it would be natural to assume that the PCCB's are designed for track use in the first place
    But there are drivers who complain about the poor longevity of the PCCB's on the track. Some even bought their cars equipped with them and then decided to replace them with steel brakes
    Maybe those track drivers complaining just don't cool off the brakes properly after some hot laps or maybe they do some other weird things with their cars

    Re: PCCB Yellow Brakes

    Thanks very much for your insights. I'm considering PCCBs for a Cayman S because 1) steel brake disks rust very quickly in Hawaii's salt environment, 2) I expect the steering will feel lighter or more responsive, 3) I just plain like the looks of the yellow calipers and big composite roters. On the down side is the cost, which everyone assures me will not be recovered at tradein or resale.
