Resurrecting this for more input, hopefully from someone in Australia or one of the countries that gets JDM/EDM/ADM Subarus
I have a set of '07 red 4 pots for the front, but still looking for rear 2 pots that would fit.
The JDM (etc.) versions of the WRX got 4/2 pot brakes back in like 2000 or 2002 (they were black with raised letters), but the USDM version only got them for 06/07 it seams (red with decals). Correct me if I am wrong on that.
I got to thinking, why would JDM (etc) have 4/2 pots earlier than USDM, then nix the idea all together and go back to mono setups for 08 on......that makes no since. So I started looking for what the 11 came with in other markets. Unfortunately, I am having a hard time finding the specs written out in English. However, I went and looked at an AU dealer's site and see that even the base WRX for 2012 has red calipers front and rear.
I want to know if these are the same calipers that are stock on the USDM, just painted red for the other markets, or if they are in fact 4/2 (or 6/4, or 6/2) pot setups. And, if they are multi-pot setups, do they have the same rotors we have in USDM. Finally, if they are multi-pot, and if they are the same rotors, can someone either help us USDM guys import a few pairs or give us the part numbers so a dealer can get them?
