    Have they stopped making all MTM wheels or just the titan polished ones? If you can get the regular ones you could alwys get them polished or powdercoated.

    I had mine done in black. Worked out cheaper than trying to get QST to order them specially from MTM.

    Tut-tut Chris...
    Either that car has just been cleaned, and the wheel cleaner has made the discs rust....or you've been spending too much time poncing about the wine Bars of Aberdeen?

    Surely your new residence requires the use of those bling stoppers to access?

    The pic was taken as I picked the car up from Polished Bliss. They didn't stay that way for long.

    Roads around this way are too much fun. The rear discs are no longer grooved. I've worn them down a little. And the fronts are getting badly cracked. Not really bling anymore.

    Honest, Guv...

    I know the feeling...
    I just fitted new discs all round to my Golf...all well worn, but the fronts had removed all traces of the grooves.

    The 911 needs new brakes too...fronts worn out and cracked, rears worn and corroded on the insides.
    No matter...a simple matter of 1170 plus fitting costs will have them right. Gulp!

    You're getting value for money there! To replace the Porsche discs on the front, and the ECS rears, all pre-mounted on new hats, will cost about 800. Race pads for the front are about another 150. Bling ain't cheap.

    Edit: Plus fitting!!!

    996 C4S...well spotted!
    I bought it new at the end of 2004, as the last of the 996 shape 911s, 2005 model...I paid a few pints short of 80,000 with the 15,000 worth of options I couldn't refuse selecting.

    ...and every day I drive it it amazes me more.

    Difficult to drive fast...takes me a good hour or so to get keyed into it...but when I do...it's sublime.

    Sure, Evos are faster off the line, a used 911 turbo is faster top end....but for driving pleasure, and something you have to work at, it's superb!

    doesn't cost any more to run than my S3 either!

    Aren't your front callipers Mk1 GT3?
    Same as C4S/turbo?

    I was wondering what aftermarket pads would be for mine.


    Porsche parts aren't that bad...certainly the consumables.
    Those are 330 x 30 cross drilled, F & R...so at 157 ea F and 141 ea R, they aren't bad at all.

    Porsche servicing is also in line with Audi...ant it doesn't wreck bushes or track rods like my S3 did either!

    993 Turbo. The disc size 322 x 32, so I'm not sure how they'd compare.

    I've gone for Hawk HT-10's. I'll have to wait and see how bad the low speed screaching will be but since I'm not using the car that much now it shouldn't matter too much.

    That's not bad at all. I'd be expecting about 175 each for my fronts had I not gone for the bling hats.

    Don't want to sound daft, but as its never happened to me yet what exactly happens when your track rods go? I've noticed a few stange knocking sensations from somewhere in the suspension. Haven't figured out what it is yet and too broke to find out.

    Amen...

    Ahh...the heavy, flexy callipers?
    OK...my mistake.


    I've gone for Hawk HT-10's. I'll have to wait and see how bad the low speed screaching will be but since I'm not using the car that much now it shouldn't matter too much.
    I hope they are better than my Mintex Racing F4Rs...they are bloody awful, noise wise.

    Yeah, 996 consumables are reasonable.
    Brakes, belts, plugs, filters etc...it's the non consubables that sting you (engines, g/boxes etc...hence the extended warranty!)


    Don't want to sound daft, but as its never happened to me yet what exactly happens when your track rods go? I've noticed a few stange knocking sensations from somewhere in the suspension. Haven't figured out what it is yet and too broke to find out.
    I never heard any knocking...but you'll feel the suspension start to feel a bit vague (since yours is pretty well sorted, you'll notice it...on a standard car I doubt you would!), it may feel reluctant to turn in, or need more correcting that normal...or tramline more under power...or squirm more under braking.

    Front lower arm bushes and track rod ends can all give these symptoms.

    You are lucky if you've not had any go...or maybe you just don't drive very fast!
    I had 3 bushes wrecked and a track rod end gone at the S3s first MOT...all covered by Audi under warranty!

    Haha, sorry. MTM wheels are only sold in this country by their UK distributer, QST. If you can't get them from QST or MTM direct, then you won't get them at all.
