    holy crap! thats ridiculous! I wonder what kind of pads you get at like a firestone type place. I know they wont install parts you bring in, but I wonder which brand (if not their own) they use for 'performace brakes'

    I'm glad you are not stuck in a computer. That would be uncomfortable.

    Also change the pads yourself, it's easy bro.

Anyhow, I'm leaving school early at 2...because ya know, my Sub is 10x more important then school... and my question is, how long does it take to put new brakes on and do an oil change? I remember last time I was there the car needed to sit about 45 min to cool down from the ride over before oil could be changed. Maybe they will do the brakes while they wait for it the oil to cool, but I just don't know! I just don't wanna get out of school at 2 and get home at 5!!
    How many miles do you have on your ride? Seams early to be replacing pads on a '12?

    I would go with what everyone says, do the install yourself. Not only do you learn more about your car, you also save moneys!

    As to which pads should be able type in make model and year of your car and should bring it up.

    How much do pads cost?

    BTW, I've changed my own since day one, never found it difficult, except for when the caliper piston sticks...
    Drum brakes, like the e-brake, are a little harder, sometimes you have to rivet the new lining to the carrier. Still not too bad.

    And try to get some of the brake lubricating paste, sold in little packets (like mustard at McD) at parts stores. It's NOT grease, don't be mistaken there. Instructions on use should be on the pack.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
