I am changing my brake pads and rotors myself did not want to pay $3,000 to the stealer :hilarious:

Once I am done changing all pads and rotors do I need to do a brake fluid flush? is it a must to do it immediately?

Thank you.

There's no time connection that forces you to do it immediately. It's convenient to do it then since you have the wheels off but no rush.

I second this. When I did my pads I waited a week or so to have the fluid bleed for a track day. Just make sure you do a proper bed in of the brakes which is much more important than bleeding right away.

Brake fluid should be flushed based on time. For street use the manual indicates flush the brake fluid every 2 years. So when was your last flush?

For track the fluid should be higher temp spec and flushed more often. I use Castrol SRF and flush about every 6 months.

If your car is manual you ought to flush the clutch fluid. It shares the brake reservoir. Porsche has a two year interval for brake fluid replacement.

How about using Porsche parts vs OEM parts? I see that Pelican parts has many options for pads, rotors, and sensors. After watching a brake job done on YouTube, I plan to do my brakes (coming up soon).

Are the cheaper, OEM supplier, parts just as good as the Porsche parts?

Also, I'm looking at $600 in parts for the fronts, seems legit?
