Front pads I got from honda and the rear I got thermal quiets. Yesterday I had to replace the rears and the front still had lots of life left. I compared the material oem and aftermarket (oreillyís). Oemís quality seams a lot better.

    Back to decision making. Iím starting to lean towards a base wrx. i think sway bars and end links, short shifter, and axel back would hold me down for a bit.
    False.

    You can find pads for as cheap as $35 for the fronts (Centric Posiquiets from Rallysport direct), which is what I use and they are awesome. But commonly used ones are Ferrodo or Hawk HPSs which will be more expensive considering they are much better quality. OEMs from Subaru squeal too much and also don't provide as good of bite as most of the aftermarket pads out there. Pad life will depend mostly on how you drive and what material the pads are made of.
