    Default F430 Ceramic Brakes

    Is it normal for these to squeak at low speed ? Its a bit embarrassing driving around in town with the noise they make.

    Is there an easy solution ?

Our name is clive 430 ,He is planning on buying a f1 430 which as ceramic brakes fitted, do you or anyone else know how long they last? He will be going on track days with 430 at least 3-6 times a year . He has already owned 355 & 360 in past!

    Default Welcome

    The theory is they last for life - the cost is improving but a few folk have replaced with steel - I think there's a read-out available which should be part of the buying process - this may be worth a read - there may be a few other threads too with a 'search'
