Still submit ideas.

Did some calling around today.

Subaruparts.com:
Front rotor - $369 each
Rear rotor - $319 each

Front or Rear set of pads - $320

brembo.com:
SET of Front rotors (2) either cross-drilled or slotted - $449
SET of Rear rotors (2) either cross-drilled or slotted - $429

Brembo doesn't sell the OEM pads for propietary reasons of the caliper being custom made for the STi etc... but at least we can get a price break on the rotors.

Anyway I did a search and didn't find any of this type of information... sorry if it's a repost.

That can't be right. Tell me you meant to say, "front AND rear". Even that is expensive as hell. But that's insane to say that each individual wheel needs a $160 pad, or $640 in brake pads for the whole car!

As long as they last 100K miles, then I guess that's okay.

naw, i think it's right. i'd heard the dealer was charging $400 for a pair, so $320 sounds right. unbelievable eh? i've got 9500miles on 'em now and thought they are still dusting like crazy, i still have quite a bit left.

The brake systems on those other cars are similar, but the sizing is different. There was a big discussion on this and a Brembo engineer actually weighed in with all the specs and they are slightly different.

Just curious as to what you mean by "the brakes are covered"? Are you implying that the brakes will be covered under warranty? If so that is news to me as I didn't think wear items (like brake pads, rotors, clutch, etc) were covered under warranty.

Please inform me if they are though :)?!?!?

Lots of wear items, including the breaks, and even the wiper blades, are covered during the 36/36000 warranty...

Not sure how much of that applies to the extended.

Since I've joined the "Suby Cult" two years ago I've started selling blood plasma for parts. Serious! Now my RSB and Subzeros won't fit, and I'm eventually looking at really expensive brake parts.

Tire Rack has EBC brake pads for a Ferrari for $98 a set. I assume that they should be pretty close to the price for our pads. They have worked pretty well in the past for everyone that I have known. They also have rotors just not listed for the STi yet. I will go aftermarket on those parts if they are that expensive from Subaru.

Color me skeptical, but there's no way brake pads and wiper blades are covered under warranty. If I'm mistaken, great, but I really don't believe it.

STi Regrets? Post them here...

IF the brakes need to be replaced during that time, it'll probably only be once.... and as far as wiper blades go.... how much is that REALLY gonna cost them? Probably less than 10 bucks wholesale for both blades....

The wiper blades are crap anyway if you ask me. I replaced them with silblades. But yes, the brakes are covered for 3/36k.

Luckily all the brake components are covered for 3//36k miles : ) I was surprised also, since I'm sure a lot of people will be tracking the car.
