i have an '03 WRX wagon, and my brakes are just about shot. I am trying to decide whether i should just have the shop lathe? the rotors and get new pads, or if i should buy new, better rotors and pads. The shop charges about $165 per axel, and im wondering if there are any aftermarket rotors and/or pads that i could get for not a whole lot more money, or if i should just stick with stock (i'm on somewhat of a budget).
All i do is drive on the roads, i never race for long periods of time.
And of course, if there is anything that i'm missing, plz let me know, as i'm a bit of a car noob.
