Did anybody had to change break discs already ? And when, why?
8000 miles of hard driving and a trackday and still on the money,what i have noticed is that i always filled in the holes with pad on my porsches ( i am not the most sympathetic at braking).But on the 12c they are fine,and my rotors only lasted 5/6 k miles on my first turbo.So im very pleased so far.

True,but if you could translate german as good,we would be impressed:)


Thank you so far , andy. It seems that after 2 Sessins on the NS and another 2 in Spa and some minor meetings my Steel- BRAKE discs ( :D ) are going to the end.

A disc (International English) or disk (American English), from Latin discus which itself derives from Greek δίσκος, is a flat circular object.
So our favorite poster Mark from the US should actually be using disk whilst the rest of us not in the US would use disk. Tis the folly of English.

But in the USA we say "brake rotor", in English we say Brake disc ! :D

What is your total milage?? But i still think after all that trak (notice what i did there) time its not bad value for money!! The disks are replaced fully,the hub also,i initially though they might keep that,but it would be too time consuming to brake (did it again) them down.I would be interested to know the cost as you wil be the first on here to do so??

Interesting related point - McLaren sales manager was telling me wheel bolts are replaced at 2 year service point (and every 2 years subsequently) - I don't think the wheel bolts are particularly light weight so it would seem to be an unusual service interval?
Are there any other (unusual) service items with the 12C? (I know we haven't reached the 2 year service yet)

replacement of hydralic fluid in the suspension system every 2 years also,that has to be quite unique:)

Wonder if this is necessary, or just another money maker for Dealers? Seems like overkill to me?

mines are looking not good (front)

some cracks are going from the holes to the extremity of the discs. That's the end. The price is around 850 € for the both front ones. I've got 10500 kms and around 6 trackdays. I don't know if we can have better discs from AP.
