Just watched my video health check from 2017 when I had my last Macan SD serviced at 2 years and 16300 miles. The rear discs were 21.6 mm ( min 20mm) and pads 6mm and front discs were 33 mm (min 32mm - 50% worn ) pads 6mm.
Thanks Mark much appreciated....
No problem. Your discs do seem to have suffered excessive wear considering your low mileage.

Michelin tyres, how did you manage that?
They must have been spec'd by Porsche as it was a Porsche owned vehicle. This may be why it came with quite a few options.

Hi Mark what % wear were your rear discs I plan to discus the excessive wear on mine with the OPC before they return my Macan today.

Rick, a question you might ask yourself, is what happens to all the cars that have been used, at the PEC at Silverstone?. They've got to be put through the system somewhere.

Who would want to drive a 2.0 SUV around Silverstone😂. I measured the tread depth on a new 295/40/21 Michelin Latitude Sport 3 which proved my tyres have only worn 0.5mm in 3400 miles which isn't bad. I know the history of my Macan now so all is good.....😁

My 2017 Macan with 3388 miles on the clock has just been through a Porsche health check which shows front pads and disc worn 30%
I am not a mechanic and I have spent very little time thinking about let alone studying braking systems but . . . every car has them, big cars have bigger ones than small cars but they all stop the car. I expect expensive cars to have better quality systems than cheaper cars. On the presumption that Porsche has better quality materials and better engineered systems why do the pads and the discs not last as long as other (cheaper) cars? My Q5 has just been serviced after 21,000 miles and the pads are 20% worn (80% good) I did not get a report on the discs I presume that's because there's little to no wear; why? . . . Why do the brakes on Porsche, a car with the best materials and superior engineering, fail so much quicker than other cars?
(Note: I estimate that 90% of my 21,000 miles was on local urban city roads)

is it to do with Porsche's demand for there cars to stop in half the time it take to get to any speed?

Anyone who goes for the PEC outing and has a base Macan on order. By the way, the PEC is located at Silverstone but is not the F1 track.

My problem with that suggestion is that the single most significant memory of my test drive was when I came to the first junction, put my foot on the brake and it wasn't stopping, there was a millisecond of shock until I pushed down harder on the peddle (harder that I need to push in my current none Porsche car).
