    Saw the stoptech link.

    Ordered the stage 2 upgrade, slots, pads, lines, fluid.

    Dealer wants $681.00 for OEM rotors and pads only!
    The heck with that.
    Stoptech was 599.00 for better rotors and pads,and included the SS lines and Fluid.

    I just hit 22,500 miles and still have factory brakes and no problems yet... not even a squeak. When they eventually go, I'm going to upgrade to probably slotted front brakes and leave the rears factory (maybe?) since I think it's around 80% of your braking force is on the front. It's going to cost a bundle either way... so why not go with something that's better?

    I sit/drive in a lot of traffic every day, so I just stay in 1st - 3rd gear and use the engine for braking purposes so that I'm not riding my brakes all the time. I'm curious to see how long my brakes do last, though.
