I did a brake pad change on a 2003 Porsche Carrera. OMG the brakes are so nice to deal with in comparison to an E46. Where to start...

-Calipers are super light, way lighter than even little 323 calipers.
-Only 2 easy to access bolts to take the entire caliper off, a third little M6 hex cap crew that holds the brake line on the fronts.
-The pad wear sensors monitor pad life on all 8 pads of the car, versus the two monitored pads on the E46, and the sensors cost the same. There are 4 sensors instead of 2, so $40 for a full set, instead of $20, but easily worth it for the extra information to most people.
-The pad wear sensors are identical for all four hubs, so one sensor can be a spare for an every caliper. The neat way Porsche does it better than BMW is instead of putting that little box with the connections for the wheel speed and pad wear inside the wheel well, or under the side skirt for the rears, Porsche puts that little box right on the spindle. Simple. That way all pad wear sensors only need a very short length of wire, there are less loose wires in the wheel well, and only 3 plastic clips to hold the wires down, versus like the dozen used for one rear pad sensor on the E46.
-No anti-squeal paste needed! Porsche Brembos use these nifty little vibration damping pads with a self adhesive backing. Kinda pricey little things, but can be reused if not damaged. Also the pads themselves had little rigid pendulum-like weights on them which I assume are also to prevent squealing and vibrations.
-If you don't care about squealing, you can take the vibration damping pads out, and then you can change brake pads without even taking the calipers off. Without the vibration damping pads, you can literally just take off the front wheel, pop out one pin with a screwdriver or needle nose pliers, and the rest of the procedure only involves your hands.

Aside from the initial cost, Porsche Brembos make excellent brakes for a performance street car or light duty track car. Actually, they would probably do excellent for most track cars just because of their large size, low weight, and easy serviceability.

Now for some more pictures, which everybody loves. Sadly, I was too lazy to get out the DSLR, so iPhone 4 pictures.
Pretty cool. The benefit I see to the way BMW does the sensors is that wiring that flexes becomes a wear item (cf. boot lid wiring fail). Sounds like Porsche has the body harness flex instead of the part that gets replaced regularly.
