    STI Brakes. 2007. Really?

    I was qouted 2500 dollars for Pads and Rotors from my dealer on my 2007 STI with 51,000 miles on it. This includes labor of about 200.

    Is this par for the course for Brembo, or am I out of my mind.

    1) Buy this: KNS Brakes
    2) DIY
    3) Buy me a case of microbrew IPA for saving you $2000

    How do those compare performance wise to Brembo.

    I assume Brakes on the STI arent any more complicated than most mere mortal cars?

    Equal or better. Just be sure to properly bed the pads. The OE pads are extremely dusty. The Stoptechs should be a little less dusty, IIRC.

    Doesn't show rotors, but they aren't really difficult.

    You haven't given me a list of microbrews in your area to choose from...

    There are quite a few members from CO on the board:

    If you're not completely comfortable with DIY, I'm sure there are people there that would be willing to help.

    Yes. That kit is designed for the '07 STI.

    You can even save $100 and go with these:
