    Ya, your only choice is to go to a different pad or get the PCCB's. There are some softer pads that should do the trick...

    Does anyone else dislike the look of the V coupe? GM wrenched the back end up, it looks like a hatch back. Love the V drivetrain just like the looks of the sedan a lot better!

    If your looking at the v coupe you may want to check out the 11+ gt500. The interior will surprise you and now they have the al block its down to 3750 curb. The svt suspension has it handling great(1+g, its turning times similar if not better than the ford gt). the 11+ gt500 with suspension pack and twin screw making 700-800rwhp is a very slick ride!

    It is a very, very nice ride. But it isn't exactly the comfortable more luxurious setup that the C63 or CTS-V are.

    That said, I'm in love with the GT500.

    i question the solid rear axle on bumpy roads...especially a canyon road. But I love the sound of shelby/cobra mustang v8 exhaust. Actually prefer them to vettes. They have a unique sound.

    i say stick to your GT3,wonderful car,marvelous engine,fantastic transmission,great breaks(ceramic),and bad balance!
    i drove on of these back in Isle of Man and such a experience it was, i really enjoyed it. but this car has a big problem (maybe it doesn't match my driving style) and that's cornering.under hardbraking it gets a little understeer and after accelerating it will be a wide oversteer(it's fun for a professional guy which i'm not)! maybe it's just me , because the owner didn't have the same problem.
    what was the topic about? oh i remeber nowClick here to enlarge i say keep it, because if you sell it nothing can satisfy you !

    No doubt. Im just saying that I get the v sedan and the c63 long before I get the v coupe(I think it looks like a civic hatch out back). If were only talking coupes in the $60k range the two I look at are the 993 turbo and the gt500.

    From what I have read you do not want to upgrade to PCCB. A friend of mine actually removed the PCCB from his car, sold them, and put on the standard steel brakes with new pads bc maintenance was so expensive.
    Try getting new pads and have them bed in properly, it is really a shame that they sell a "streetable" car with brakes that resemble a woman's shriek

    What's so expensive about PCCB maintenance? Pads? The rotors are lifetime.

    from my knowledge to maintain the ceramics and to make them last you have to change braked fluids after every event, make sure pads are in top shape, make sure they warm up and cool down correctly...and if at the track there is any little rocks that hit them it can cause cracks...alot of people change to iron because the maintenance required...but the ceramics are better. If maintained properly they will last a very long time.

    They are bedded in correctly...ive only heard of 1 or 2 cars that dont squeal, but most say its not as loud as im experiencing. They dont squeal if i press hard on the brakes, so half the time i come to stop signs or lights i brake late and hard, lol.....but cant do that with passengers and people usually look at me all wierd.

    friend following me in his e60 m5 with meistershaft exhaust, and myself testing c63....listen at 2:10 his car sounds good then right past 3:00 i do a little burnout and he does as well but there is a cop at next stop sign so he puts camera down. The car salesman told me to stop, then he just said floor it. Arent any curves in the area so nothing to exciting.
