I drive a lot...
My '11 STI is 1 year old this month, and I have 26K miles on the car. Today I noticed the brakes making a very slight grinding noise - I think its getting close to needing new pads. My garage isn't heated, so I really don't want to be changing brakes in the middle of a Vermont winter - so I am thinking sometime in November I would like to take care of this.
My questions are:
1.) The brakes don't pulse, so I am inclined not to buy new rotors. Is this a mistake, or should the rotors be able to make it another 30K miles?
2.) What is a good website to buy pads (that are good) at a good price?
3.) My Dad has a couple of vettes and a trailblazer SS - he made the switch to ceramic pads and loves them. Do those of you who started using ceramic pads like them?
