Hi All,

I'm UK based and just went to order brakes from Pagid and they asked whether the car had the sports package or not - I know the springs were sport springs but how would I know whether I definitely had the full sport package please? Apparently the rear pads are slightly different sizes?

TIA

Lee

• Post your VIN in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).

Once one of the mods see your post, they'll post your datacard, which should list the options that the car was originally built with. :D

Nice one, thank you - just checked the datacard (I had it previously given to me) and no Sport option given. The sports springs must have been dealer fit as when we replaced the fronts springs it definitely had Mercedes springs of the same height as the sport springs.
Ordered the rears for now as I'm not sure which ones set the sensor off as from the outside the front and rear pads appear fine. I'm thinking, like our old Boxster, that the inside of the rears may be low. On the Boxster we had a low pad warning and th outside pads looked fine with a fair few mil left on them - upon removing then and checking everything the inside pads were toast and the inside of the brake disc was starting to fall apart.
