      If you are referring to the 911 the parking brake is a drum in hat set up with motors on each side to lock the rear wheels only. The parking brake does not engage your brake calipers when stopped,...

      The fact that you are calling a b5 s4 a pos is just astounding to me. This was a car that won many magazine shootouts amongst some tough competition. Just because the internet makes them out to be...
