Just out of curiosity, what's the reason for changing the rotors and calipers on your brand new car?
This is a discussion on New to WRX and Forum within the New Member Hangout forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Good Day All, Got this about a week ago and have been looking at the forums to get some ideas ...
Good Day All, Got this about a week ago and have been looking at the forums to get some ideas and info. Looks like a great bunch of people here that have a lot of experience and knowledge. So my first question......want to change the rotors and calipers and would like to get some ideas about the process and prices. Could probably do it myself but it would be outside in the cold (not fun). I am in S.W. Virginia about 2 hours out of D.C. That brings me to my second question...any reputable shops in this area? Dealership for this? Thanks and I look forward to learning more from you guys!
Being able to stop is definitely important lol. And yes the stock calipers on that body style are silver. I also assumed it was brand new (oops) how many miles are on it?
1.) Stainless Steal Brake lines
2.) A quality set of pads
3.) Quality Brake fluid (Motul RBF or ATE Superblue is recommended)
4.) Quality performance tyres (that's right, this is THE most important part of braking)
