Cayman Diaries: New Stoppers
I’ve been putting it off, but it was time to get the car in for some new brake discs and pads on the front. The Cayman hasn’t been used too much recently due to the winter weather, so its old stoppers had lasted longer than expected. At just over 38,000 miles my Cayman has a new set of Genuine Porsche items. A point to note is that this is around 15,000 miles AFTER Porsche issued me an advisory on my MOT saying that the brakes were due. That was 18 months ago!!
My new brakes have been on now for a month and haven’t had any problems thus far. They were fitted by Revolution-Porsche in Brighouse, just of J25 of the M62, chosen due to their location close to my work and they have good reports across the internet.
I wasn’t disappointed, upon arrival I was greeted by Rus, one of the owners who showed me around and introduced me to the team. Russ is the general manager at Revolution and Scott is the Technical Director, who will be working on my car today. All of the mechanics there are former Official Porsche Centre employees and fully trained with relevant diagnostics equipment.
I was taken upstairs to the waiting area, adjacent to the office whilst my car was sorted. The waiting room nicely decorated with lots of display model cars of all different Porsche cars from the ages. It also features magazines a-plenty, wi-fi connection whilst I waited and tea and biscuits were provided for the duration.
The price was incredibly reasonable, undercutting the genuine Porsche garage by around 40% – even after the OPCs best discounts.
Great service and great prices. I’d recommend Revolution if you need work doing on your car – my car will certainly be going back there for its future maintenence.
