Cool Brake discs

Hiya - new member (Mercury)
I have sold my Boxster and will be picking up a new Boxster S on 7 June - I work away quite a lot and have to leave my Boxster - consequently when I come back the discs started to some rust deposits - anyone out there knows how to prevent this?? Cheers ....

I don't know about a preventative measure, but driving it and some braking will remove all that surface rust. My car has rusty discs if I've driven it in the rain and then left the car in the garage for a few weeks. No big deal and nothing to worry about.

No way to prevent it. Don't spray them with anything like WD-40 or Wax and such - this will contaminate the Pads.

As Randall states, just drive the car, the rust will be ground away in the 1st couple stops...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
