Looks like the pads may need replacing on the Macan as we've just received the usual email to remind us that they may need inspecting.....

The car is due in for its first service in 2 weeks (which has come round quick but it's covered 19,000 miles now!) so no doubt they will provide a quote to replace them. My question is, if I replace them with genuine Porsche pads myself, will this have any impact on the warranty?

Cheers
So nobody has looked at your pads yet then? I'd guess you'll be fine unless you've driven like an animal. They may be concerned that they won't last another 19k after this service, so could try and get you to have them changed.

Not necessarily typical but when I sold my 2015 SD after five years and 43k miles it still had the original pads and discs. I'd do nothing until you get a report showing the actual wear percentage, not someone's guess.

Update from the service - Rear pads worn 25%, front 35% worn so all good. It was just an automated email they sent out suggesting they needed replacing.

Cost of the first service came in at £734 all in, which I think is reasonable.

:lol: Let's say I didn't buy it to potter about in! And the ACC excessively wears the pads, I'm led to believe.

Now does that suggest that not all those pads were worn out? I didn't think that disks these days could out last that many pads and I don't see how any driving style can wear one and not t'other. 🤔
